SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY; A MODERN AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO REPLACE THE CONVENTIONAL OPEN SHOULDER SURGERY

The shoulder is mainly the most crucial joint which allows our hand to move in a 180-degree range in three different planes. This is a complex structure made of separate bones which work together to give the human an extraordinary range of motion. But it is also true that the more a joint can do, there is more scope for it to go wrong. Thus, if your shoulder can do so much for you, it needs specialized treatment if anything goes wrong with your shoulder.

The most common shoulder injuries include:

  • Dislocation
  • Separation
  • Fracture
  • Cartilage Tear
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

We at Germanten Hospital have promised to keep your shoulder healthy enough to carry whatever it comes to your life. Our team has the expertise and experience to provide extensive care for your shoulder, including invasive and non-invasive shoulder pain treatment in Hyderabad.

Since your shoulder is considered to be one of the most complicated joints of your body, there can be many conditions which can affect your shoulder. Here is one of the most common shoulder ailments that you need to know about: shoulder arthroscopy.

WHY THE SHOULDER GETS AFFECTED?

Shoulder can get affected for many reasons. It can be due to some inner problems or may be due to certain accidents. Group of muscles and their tendons create a cuff over the joint of the shoulder. The same muscles and tendons help the arm to stay connected to the shoulder joint and regulates the movement of the hand in different directions. If somehow the tendons are overused, it may cause an injury to the joint.

TYPES OF SHOULDER TREATMENT DONE IN GERMANTEN:

  • Activity Changes: There is no doubt that every treatment needs its patient to have enough rest. We at Germanten try to help our patients with alternative activities like exercises, and physical therapies which help them in improving the strength and flexibility of the shoulder.
  • Medication: Medication is another treatment procedure which can reduce the inflammation and the pain of the shoulder. The medications must be taken as directed by our physicians. We can also prescribe numbing medicines and injections adhering the health condition of the patient.
  • Surgery: Surgeries can be required to solve certain severe shoulder injury. Most of the time we try to resolve the problems with simple medication and treatments. But then there are some shoulder conditions like rotator cuff tears, recurring dislocation etc. which can get resolved with medicine alone.

Our surgery can include arthroscopy which removes or repair the damaged tissue. There are open and traditional procedures too like shoulder replacement or shoulder reconstruction.

WHEN A SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY IS RECOMMENDED TO THE PATIENTS?

There can be injuries, age-related problems, and maybe wears and tears due to the overuse of the shoulder- a shoulder arthroscopy can relieve painful symptoms from every joint of the shoulder. Pain, stiffness and swelling are the most common symptoms which can happen due to the inflammation of the shoulder joint.

We at Germanten Hospital try all possible non-surgical methods including rest, medication. Injections etc. to increase the ability and functioning of the shoulder. Shoulder arthroscopy is recommended only when the painful condition no longer responds to it.

Shoulder arthroscopy can treat health conditions like:

  • Bankart Lesion
  • Arthritis at the end of the collarbone
  • Inflammation or bone spur around the rotator cuff
  • Damaged or torn tendons in the biceps
  • Shoulder impingement Syndrome
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Damage or swelling in the linings of the joint
  • Shoulder instability etc.

WHAT IS A SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY?

Arthroscopy is a surgical method to replace the old shoulder replacement surgery and which has the intervention of a tiny camera called the arthroscope into it, which helps in examining or repairing the tissues inside or around the joint of the shoulder joint. The camera is inserted to the body through a small incision.

 

HOW A SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY IS DONE AT GERMANTEN BY THE BEST ARTHROSCOPIC SURGEONS IN HYDERABAD?

It is not mandatory for all the patients who undergo arthroscopic surgery to have an overnight stay at the hospital. If the patient is generally healthy, the operation can be held as an outpatient setting. Most of the arthroscopic procedures can take more than an hour or so, but the length of the process depends on the diagnosis of the doctor.

The patient is taken through the surgery process only after anesthesia. Which means that the patient stays asleep during the surgery process. Which make them unable to feel the pain during the surgery. Patients can also be given with regional anesthesia in some cases. The area around the shoulder is numbed and is also given particular medicine so theta the patient can sleep before the surgery.

  • To begin with, a sterile fluid is injected in the patient’s body, especially in the shoulder joint pf the patient. Inflation of the joint helps the doctors to see through the arthroscope easily.
  • An arthroscope is then inserted in the patient’s body through a buttonhole incision. A video screen is fixed to project the images from the arthroscope. This way, the doctors can see the inner part of the shoulder and if there is any damage inside it.
  • Once the problem is identified by the doctors, other small instruments are inserted with the help of small incisions as per the need of the patient and the condition.
  • After the shoulder arthroscopy is over the incisions are closed with stitches and followed by adhesive bandages.

HOW A PATIENT CAN RECOVER AFTER THE ARTHROSCOPY?

In many hospitals, doctors like to go for open surgeries still for treating specific shoulder problems. We at Germanten choose to go for an Arthroscopy as the recovery of arthroscopy is faster than that of the open operations. The patient needs to take care of the shoulder joint for a few weeks, and the life can get back to track entirely after that.

It is prevalent for the patients undergoing arthroscopy to experience some discomfort or pain for a week after the shoulder dislocation treatment. Ice, painkillers and particular body positioning help the patients to deal with the pain. The patients are also given with slings and immobilizer to protect the shoulder ultimately form getting another damage when it is still vulnerable.

Several rehabilitation exercises and daily activities can speed up the healing process. Our surgeon will work with the physical therapy team, and you are provided you with a customized rehabilitation plan according to your health condition. The physical therapist at Germanten will help you to strengthen your shoulder and regain the motion through your daily exercise program.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY?

It is not about the benefits of our doctors or our team. We are highly focused on taking up the treatment procedures that are beneficial for our patients. Even though there are many open surgery methods to help our patients to deal with a shoulder problem. We have chosen Shoulder arthroscopy for it:

  • Leaves minimal scar on the body of the patient
  • Does not require an overnight stay to the hospital
  • Decreases the pain and swelling
  • Improves the motion and recovery is quicker than other surgeries
  • Has fewer risks and complications.
