Unveiling the Wonders of Shoulder Arthroscopy

Deciphering Shoulder Arthroscopy

Shoulder arthroscopy is an advanced orthopedic procedure employed by skilled surgeons to diagnose or treat shoulder joint issues. This minimally invasive technique involves the use of an arthroscope, a slender tube equipped with a camera and light at one end. The arthroscope’s diminutive size grants your orthopedist access to the shoulder joint, facilitating repairs through a few small incisions. Consequently, this approach expedites your recovery process. At City Orthopaedics, we boast a wealth of experience in leveraging arthroscopic methods to mend diverse shoulder problems, delivering restored mobility and a safer, swifter recovery.

Why Opt for Shoulder Arthroscopy?

Our orthopedic specialists may recommend shoulder arthroscopy if you’re grappling with any of these shoulder conditions:

  • Shoulder Arthritis
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Shoulder Instability
  • Shoulder Impingement

Demystifying Shoulder Arthroscopy

Your journey through shoulder arthroscopy at City Orthopaedics typically comprises these steps on your surgery day:

  1. You may receive anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  2. Small incisions are made in the shoulder area, allowing for the insertion of small tools and the arthroscope.
  3. In cases of tears, your surgeon employs small anchors to reconnect damaged tissues in the shoulder.
  4. The arthroscope camera enables close monitoring of any additional joint issues.
  5. Meticulous closure of the small incisions ensues.

In the days and weeks following your shoulder arthroscopy, adhering to your doctor’s advice regarding physical therapy, exercise therapy, or other post-surgery directives is crucial. During a follow-up visit post-shoulder surgery, we’ll provide comprehensive insights into your recovery process, addressing any needs or concerns you may have along the way.
