Date :22-Jan-2019

Shoulder related issues have always been a problem amongst the middle-aged and older citizens. Many surgeries are recommended for the treatment but shoulder arthroscopy has been particularly popular within the last few years. Here's a brief description about Shoulder Arthroscopy.

What is shoulder arthroscopy?

Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure which is performed to diagnose and treat shoulder joint related problems and also the issues in the rotator cuff. Small incisions are made to insert special surgical instruments like the arthroscope, which is a thin tool that has magnifying lenses and a light source. The instrument is attached to a tiny camera that projects a clear view of the area which is to be treated, on a television screen. In such a way, the surgeon will be able to see a detailed view of the shoulder.

What are the processes during a shoulder arthroscopy?

An outpatient surgery setting is used for a shoulder arthroscopy. The type of anesthesia to be given can be decided by the patient, the doctor or the anesthesiologist. After providing the anesthesia, the surgeon makes two to three small incisions to insert the arthroscope and the other instruments. In order to get a clear view of the joint, it is filled with sterile fluid. Then the surgery is performed by the view projected on the screen by the camera attached to the arthroscope. The surgery usually takes less than an hour.

  • Make sure the surgical area is not exposed to water and kept dry for the first few days after the surgery.
  • In order to decrease pain and swelling, you may take anti-inflammatory medicines and proper rest too.
