Shoulder Arthroscopy is a revolutionary treatment that helps surgeons deal with various kinds of shoulder-related problems. This treatment involves less cutting of the intact tissue for the performance of repairs. As a result, the recovery rate is much faster than in the case of open surgery.

What are the different kinds of shoulder arthroscopy?

  • Release of frozen shoulder.
  • Repair of the rotator cuff.
  • SLAP tears or repair of Glenoid labrum.
  • Repair of the biceps tendon.
  • Shoulder dislocation or shoulder instability repair.
  • Bone spurs removal or subacromial decompression.
  • Debridement arthritis.

How long does shoulder arthroscopy take?

The shoulder arthroscopy will take around forty-five minutes to an hour. After the surgery is done, you will have to stay in a room of recovery for another hour. Then, the doctor will discharge you. However, you have to ensure that you have a ride back home as you will not be in a position to drive that day.

What are the benefits of shoulder arthroscopy?

Shoulder arthroscopy is far different from the traditional approach of open surgery. The procedure involves making a small incision. Other than this, there are many benefits.

  • Fast recovery.
  • Low blood loss.
  • Lesser damage of tissue.
  • Lesser pain.
  • Lesser chance of having an infection.

What happens during shoulder arthroscopy surgery?

During shoulder arthroscopy, the surgeon inserts a tiny camera in the shoulder joint to check the tissue damage. With another incision, the doctor performs the surgery while using the camera as a guiding tool. It is not much invasive and it can eliminate bone spurs, repair ligaments, and cartilage, as well as fix some tears.
