As one of the joints that we use the most, many individuals experience shoulder pain at some point during their lives. It can be due to repetitive motion, rotator cuff injury, arthritis, or an inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis. You should consult with an orthopedic specialist if you have shoulder pain that keeps returning, is persistent, or is getting worse. Shoulder replacement surgery (arthroplasty) involves replacing the damaged joint with an artificial implant to relieve pain and regain use of the shoulder.
Your rotator cuffs are the muscles and tendons that cover the shoulder. Rotator cuff injuries are common in individuals who participate in athletic sports and frequently lift or move heavy objects. You can also damage the rotator cuff by sleeping on the arm or exercising. During rotator cuff surgery, the surgeon will make an incision to repair the damaged muscles and tendons. Depending on the severity of the damage and other factors, a minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery may be an option.
Many patients with shoulder injuries are a candidate for shoulder arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that requires a smaller incision than traditional open surgery. A skilled orthopedic specialist inserts an arthroscope connected to a video monitor. The surgeon guides the scope to make the repairs to the muscles and tendons. Arthroscopic surgery offers a faster recovery and less downtime. It can also be performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center without needing an overnight hospital stay.
