Shoulder Surgery

There are multiple shoulder injuries and conditions a person might suffer. There are multiple treatment options. In some cases, surgery is the most viable choice. It is important for patients to know the basics regarding the procedure their doctor recommended. This ensures that they are making an informed choice regarding their treatment.

Arthroscopic Procedures

Many surgeries can be done via arthroscopy, a minimally invasive surgery [MIS] done through small nicks and through special small instruments, light source, camera and so on, all of which is called the ‘Arthroscope’.

Some of the most common arthroscopic surgeries or procedures that are performed for shoulder problems are:

  • Impingement syndrome arthroscopy: This procedure, referred to as subacromial decompression, works to increase the space between the acromion of the shoulder and the rotator cuff.
  • Arthroscopic SLAP repair: This procedure works to repair an injury to the labrum of the shoulder. It is done to help reposition the labrum.
  • Shoulder dislocation arthroscopy: This procedure may help to tighten the joint capsule to help reduce the risk of future dislocations.
  • Frozen shoulder arthroscopy: While surgery is rarely needed for frozen shoulder, when it is, this procedure might be beneficial. Loosening any tissue that is contracted is the goal of this procedure.
  • Rotator Cuff Repair: When there is an injury to the rotator cuff, surgery might be necessary to repair it. There are numerous techniques surgeons might consider. No matter which technique is used, the goal is to find the damaged area and repair it. This typically involves cleaning and reattaching any tendons that are damaged or torn. The surgeon will evaluate the patient to determine which technique is most appropriate to restore the function of the patient’s rotator cuff.
  • Acromioclavicular Joint Repairs: The AC joint is located where the acromion and clavicle meet. Arthritis can eventually wear out this joint. There are also repetitive use injuries that can damage it. It is also possible that this joint becomes instable. This puts patientat risk for shoulder separation. The goal of surgery in such cases is to reconstruct or repair the ligaments that work to provide support to the end of the clavicle.
  • Shoulder Replacement: There are times when damage to the shoulder joint is so severe that it cannot be repaired. In these instances, completely replacing this joint might be the best choice. In most cases, this surgery involves using various types of artificial ball and socket prostheses to replace the natural ones. The socket is usually made of plastic while the ball is usually made from metal or alloy.
  • Bicep Tendon Surgery: The bicep is the muscle that is located at the front of the upper arm. There is a tendon that connects this muscle to the shoulder in a complex manner. Thus it is prone to problems. This surgery may be performed alone or along with a rotator cuff repair procedure.
