If you are experiencing issues with a joint in the shoulder, arthroscopy can be a beneficial procedure to help identify and correct the problem. Through an arthroscope–a thin tube with a camera on the tip–our orthopedic experts will be able to see within the joints, examine what may be causing pain or discomfort, and treat the issue with the appropriate surgical tools.
Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
The rotator cuff is a collection of tendons and muscles that keeps the head of the humerus in the socket of the shoulder. Tears in the rotator cuff in the shoulder are common among those who work physical jobs or are active in sports. This procedure utilizes an arthroscope to repair a tear in the rotator cuff.
Arthroscopic SLAP Repair
A SLAP (superior labrum anterior-posterior) tear is a tear at the ring of cartilage that surrounds the shoulder socket, where the bicep tendon connects to the labrum. Our orthopedic experts can help treat the damaged cartilage through an arthroscope. For optimal patient comfort, arthroscopic SLAP repair is performed under general and regional anesthesia.
Arthroscopic Bankark Repair
A torn labrum is a tear of the wide band of tissue that surrounds the shoulder socket. This can lead to moderate to severe pain in the shoulder. By using an arthroscope, our orthopedic experts can help correct the torn region.
Arthroscopic Shoulder Impingement Surgery
If you are experiencing pain when you raise your arm, you may have subacromial impingement. Subacromial impingement occurs when the tendons in the shoulder create friction against the acromion, which is a part of the shoulder blade. Through an arthroscope, our orthopedic experts can repair subacromial impingement for alleviated shoulder pain.
Subacromial injections can help decrease pain in the shoulder for an improved daily life. This innovative solution is used to treat adhesive capsulitis, rotator cuff tendinosis, and impingement syndrome.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an all natural formula extracted from the patient’s very own blood to help reduce discomfort and pain in the shoulder as well as speed up the healing process.
Our orthopedic experts can help you figure out which of these procedures may be right for you. Contact us today to schedule your consultation appointment. We look forward to helping you restore an improved quality of life!
