Shoulder Surgery

Your shoulder joint is the most flexible joint in your body. It is capable of an incredible range of motion which allows you to rotate your arms in many different positions including to the front, side, above and behind your body. But this flexibility also makes your shoulder susceptible to injury and instability. Some of the most common shoulder joint injuries include:

  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendinitis

Depending on the nature and extent of the problem, our team of orthopedic surgeons always recommend non-surgical methods of treatment before any invasive shoulder surgery. However, in some cases, delaying the surgical repair of your shoulder joint can exacerbate the injury and make it more difficult to treat later on. If you are experiencing shoulder joint pain, we provide early, correct diagnosis and effective treatment that will make a significant difference to your overall health and lifestyle in the long run.

Shoulder arthroscopic surgery

Shoulder arthroscopic surgery is commonly used to diagnose and treat a shoulder joint which has been damaged by an injury, arthritis or certain health conditions. This keyhole-type surgery involves one of our expert orthopedic surgeons performing a small incision in your shoulder joint and inserting an arthroscope to examine and repair any shoulder joint damage.

Open shoulder surgery

If the damage done to the shoulder is very severe and its strength and agility fails to improve through non-surgical treatment and an arthroscopic procedure, one of our orthopedic surgeons will be required to perform an open shoulder surgery. This procedure requires a larger incision and involves removing loose fragments of tendon and other debris from the space in the shoulder where your rotator cuff is located. If needed, shaving bone from the shoulder blade may be required to ensure that the cuff is not pinched or irritated.

Shoulder surgery is a complex yet highly efficient method of repairing any joint injuries. Our specially trained and dedicated surgeons are extremely capable of repairing any shoulder joint tears safely and expertly to ensure that you experience minimal post-operative stiffness and pain and an overall faster return of function.
