What is a Shoulder Arthroscopy?
Shoulder arthroscopy is surgery that uses a small camera called an arthroscope to examine or repair the tissues inside or around your shoulder joint.
This operation only requires small cuts to insert the instruments. For this reason it is often referred to as 'key hole surgery'.
Using arthroscopic shoulder surgery, a surgeon can perform a number of procedures, including:
- Rotator cuff repair.
- Shoulder stabilisation.
- Capsular Release.
- Acromioplasty (Subacromial Decompression).
Also known as
- shoulder scope
- key hole surgery
