Shoulder Arthroscopy

The shoulder is our body's most flexible joint. It enables you to position and rotate your arm in a variety of ways in front, above, to the side, and behind the body. This flexibility makes your shoulder more prone to damage and instability, resulting in shoulder pain.

There are several causes of shoulder pain, including:

  • Poor posture
  • Injury such as a broken arm or collarbone
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Disorders of the rotator cuff
  • Shoulder instability
  • Acromioclavicular joint disorders
  • Joint disorders such as osteoarthritis

Injury, abuse, and age-related wear and tear are the leading causes of shoulder diseases. Shoulder arthroscopy can treat a variety of illnesses involving the rotator cuff tendons, labrum, articular cartilage, and other soft tissues around the joint.

Shoulder Arthroscopy:

Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure for diagnosing and treating shoulder issues. Shoulder impingement or rotator cuff injuries may necessitate arthroscopy. Traditional surgery requires larger incisions, whereas minimally invasive techniques require fewer incisions. The incisions are approximately the size of a keyhole.

A small camera called an arthroscope is inserted into your body through a tiny incision in your skin by your surgeon. This camera uses a video screen to display images of your shoulder joint. These photos are used by your provider to determine the cause of your injury. The provider will utilize microscopic surgical equipment to restore your shoulder's mobility if you need a shoulder repair.

Common arthroscopic procedures include:

  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Removal or repair of the labrum
  • Repair of ligaments
  • Removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage
  • Repair for recurrent shoulder dislocation

Types of Shoulder Arthroscopic Procedures

Rotator Cuff Tear Repair:

A rotator cuff repair is one of the most popular surgical operations for the shoulder. The surgery's purpose is to locate the rotator cuff's injured section and clean and repair any torn or damaged tendons. Once the surgeon has located the healthy tissue, he or she will employ several procedures to repair the tendon without extending the remaining tissues.The goal of these procedures is to minimize the pain, restore strength and functionality.

  • Open Repair:

    If your rotator cuff rupture is complicated or big, your doctor may recommend this form of shoulder surgery to repair the shoulder muscle and tendon completely. Bone spurs or other types of reconstruction may be used in some cases.

  • Arthroscopic Repair:

    A small camera and little devices will be used within small incisions around your shoulder during this type of shoulder surgery. This is a less invasive shoulder procedure that is normally performed as an outpatient procedure.

  • Mini Open Repair:

    An arthroscopy will be used to remove bone spurs and other damage during this type of shoulder surgery, which will need a 3 to 5-centimeter incision.

SLAP Lesion Repair:

Superior Labrum Anterior and Posterior (SLAP) Lesion Repair is a minimally invasive arthroscopic shoulder surgery that repairs the injured area with the help of a tiny camera and miniature surgical instruments. The top (superior), front (anterior), and back (posterior) of the site where the biceps tendon joins to the Glenoid Labrum are all affected by SLAP tears.

Subacromial decompression for impingement:

  • Arthroscopy (Bankart Repair) for shoulder dislocation.
  • Arthroscopy for Frozen Shoulder.
  • Arthroscopy for Acromioclavicular (AC Joint) repair).

When is Shoulder Arthroscopy needed?

Your doctor may choose shoulder arthroscopy if you have a painful condition that does not respond to nonsurgical treatment. Nonsurgical therapies include rest, physical therapy, and medications or injections that can reduce inflammation and allow injured tissues to heal.

Questions to Ask

We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for shoulder arthroscopy in India.

  • Is it time for a shoulder arthroscopy?
  • Is the orthopedic surgeon board certified?
  • How experienced is the Surgeon?
  • Which language does the surgeon speak?
  • Is the surgery done in a well-equipped facility?
  • Can you give me any information on outcomes and complication rates?
  • How much pain can I expect, and how will it be managed in the hospital and after I go home?
  • Is physical therapy necessary after surgery?
  • What about the risks involved?
  • Does the surgeon use a certified anesthetist?
  • How long will the recovery period be?

Preparation for the Surgery

Prepare to answer questions about your:

  • Medical history and exams
  • Urinary evaluations
  • Previous surgeries
  • Current medication review
  • History of smoking, drugs, or alcohol
  • Surgical expectations
  • Social Planning
  • Home Planning
Question to Ask

How is Shoulder Arthroscopy done?

Arthroscopy of the shoulder normally takes less than an hour. During arthroscopy of the shoulder:

Step 1

You'll either be semi-seated (like a beach chair) or lying on your side. To expand the joint, your surgeon may inject fluid into it. This allows the arthroscope to see all of the structures in your shoulder more easily.

Step 2

Once the issue has been identified, your surgeon will treat it with a variety of small devices placed through various incisions. Specialized equipment is used for shaving, cutting, grasping, suture passage, and knot tying. Stitches are commonly anchored in bone using special devices.

Step 3

Your surgeon may use stitches or steri-strips (tiny Band-Aids) to close your incisions and cover them with a large, soft bandage.

What Results can I Expect from Shoulder Arthroscopy?

The outcomes of shoulder arthroscopy in India are really encouraging. Approximately 95% of people who have shoulder surgery are pain-free. Shoulder arthroscopy can help you live a better life by reducing joint pain, increasing range of motion, and improving your quality of life. It may take a few months before you realize all of the benefits of the procedure.

What is the Recovery after Shoulder Arthroscopy like?

Although arthroscopy recovery is frequently faster than open surgical recovery, it can still take weeks to months for your shoulder joint to fully recover.

Lying flat may tug on your shoulder and produce discomfort, even though it has no effect on how your shoulder heals. During the first few days after surgery, some patients prefer to sleep in a reclining chair or propped up in bed.

You should be able to replace your huge bandage with simple Band-Aids a few days after surgery. Once your wounds have stopped flowing, you can wash, but don't soak or scrape your incisions.

To safeguard your shoulder, you'll probably require a sling or a specific immobilizer. Your surgeon will talk to you about how long you'll need to wear the sling.

In order for your operation to be successful, you must also put out a considerable effort in rehabilitation.

Patient Testimonials

  • Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.

    The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

    Thank you,

    Ms. Beth Brown,United Kingdom

Frequently Asked Questions

After knee arthroscopy, shoulder arthroscopy is the second most common orthopedic surgery. Joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons are all treated in orthopedic surgery.

One of the most prevalent types of shoulder arthroscopy is rotator cuff surgery.

Depending on your unique condition, you may opt for shoulder arthroscopy rather than open surgery (which requires a wider incision). Arthroscopic operations offer a lower risk of infection and a faster recovery time than open surgeries. Shoulder arthroscopy also causes less stiffness and pain in the joint than open operations.

Shoulder arthroscopy is an outpatient operation, which means you will be able to return home the same day. It normally takes less than an hour to complete the process.

After surgery, you'll need to stay in the hospital for an hour or two to recover. If pain medicine is required, your doctors will prescribe it. You'll need a ride home after that. It's ideal if you can spend the night with a family member or friend.

Regrettably, all surgeries are painful. The anesthetic team at your hospital, on the other hand, is focused on keeping you comfortable throughout surgery. They will talk to you about your alternatives.

Nerve blocks are frequently injected into your neck or shoulder during shoulder arthroscopy surgery. Your shoulder and arm will become numb as a result of these nerve blocks. They also aid in post-surgery pain management. In some situations, general anesthesia is used to keep you sleeping during your procedure.

Pain is a normal aspect of the healing process. Discuss your concerns with your healthcare providers. They can help you cope with pain as your body heals.

Shoulder arthroscopy is usually considered to be a highly safe procedure. However, like any procedure, it also carries the risk of blood clots, damage to nerves and blood vessels, infection, bleeding or swelling after the procedure.

After shoulder arthroscopy, your shoulder joint will take weeks to months to fully heal. For at least a few weeks, you may have pain and edema.

Pain treatment can be achieved with the use of ice and pain medicines. For a few days after your operation, consider sleeping raised up in a chair or bed. A sling may be recommended by your surgeon to safeguard your shoulder.

Gentle exercise and physical therapy are part of a rehabilitation strategy. It can help you move and strengthen your shoulders. Your healthcare practitioner will devise a rehabilitation programme tailored to your particular shoulder surgery.

The length of time it takes you to return to your normal routine is determined by the complexity of your surgery. You may be able to return to work or school in a few days if you've undergone a minor operation. More extensive surgeries will take longer to recuperate from. Your healthcare practitioner will provide you with advice that is appropriate for your recovery.

Joint replacement surgery is most frequently referred to as arthroplasty. It is a more major open operation than Arthroscopy, involving the replacement of your joint with a replica artificial joint.

Instead of the smaller incisions used during arthroscopies, open operations use a single big incision. This is a more traditional surgical treatment that takes longer to heal and recover from than an arthroscopic procedure.

It's a small procedure that can be done as an outpatient, meaning you can go home the same day. If you have joint inflammation, have been injured in a joint, or have gradually harmed a joint, your doctor may recommend it. Arthroscopy can be performed on any joint.

Shoulder arthroscopy is usually done under general anesthesia, or with sedation and local anesthesia- a mix of medications that will put you to sleep for the duration of the surgery, once you are in the operating room. You will have no sensations. A nerve block, which numbs the shoulder, may also be administered by the anesthesiologist.
