Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure used to visualize, diagnose, and treat various problems inside the shoulder joint and in the space surrounding the rotator cuff. This is done through small incisions that allow the insertion of specialized instruments. The arthroscope is a 4mm pencil-sized tool that contains magnifying lenses and a light source. This is attached to a small camera that projects a clear, enlarged image of the joint on a TV monitor, allowing your surgeon to see all the structures inside your shoulder.

WHEN IS ARTHROSCOPIC SHOULDER SURGERY USED?

Dr. Raju Easwaran, Senior Consultant, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Bagh says, Arthroscopic shoulder surgery is used to treat a variety of common shoulder problems, including bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, impingement, rotator cuff tears, lateral tears and shoulder instability/ multiple dislocation Usually patients who need shoulder arthroscopy have not responded well to other treatment options like rest, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and steroid injections (if required). As with any injury, your doctor will be the best source of advice on the appropriate treatment method for your situation.

HOW IS SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPY PERFORMED?

Arthroscopy is typically performed in an inpatient surgery setting. The type of anaesthesia used is decided after discussion between the patient, surgeon, and anaesthesiologist. Two or three small incisions, each the size of 4mm-6mm are needed to insert the scope and any necessary instruments. The joint is filled with sterile fluid to allow the surgeon to see more clearly. Most procedures take less than one hour to perform. Following surgery you may be in a sling or a special shoulder immobilizer' depending on the type of surgery performed. You will be given specific instructions about whether or not you are allowed to move your arm immediately after the surgery.

Rest, icing, and anti-inflammatory medications will help decrease pain and swelling. The surgical area should be kept dry when showering for the first 3-5 days. Modern dressing is water proof & allow direct shower over the dressing. Patients usually begin light exercise in 1 week.

Return to full activities may take several weeks to several months depending on the type of surgery performed.

  1. 1. Minimal scars
