What Does Shoulder Arthroscopy Involve?
Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to diagnose and treat many types of shoulder conditions. It involves inserting a long, thin instrument (arthroscope) into the shoulder joint through a small incision. A very small camera is attached to the end of the arthroscope, allowing the surgeon to view detailed video and images of the joint and gain a clearer understanding of what’s to blame for a patient’s shoulder pain or dysfunction. An arthroscope can also be used in conjunction with other special surgical instruments to treat certain shoulder injuries without large incisions.
When Is Shoulder Arthroscopy Appropriate?
In addition to providing clear images of the inside of the joint and assisting with the diagnostic process, shoulder arthroscopy may be recommended to:
- Repair a damaged ligament
- Repair a rotator cuff injury
- Remove or repair the torn flap of the labrum
- Remove loose cartilage or damaged tissue
