Shoulder and elbow surgery Shoulder Arthroscopy Shoulder arthroscopy is a type of keyhole surgery which is used to look inside the shoulder and treat the damaged shoulder which is caused by any injury, arthritis or any other health conditions. The shoulder arthroscopy is performed by making small cuts and then placing a camera on the patient’s shoulder. Frequently, more than one cut is required. This surgery is generally performed to repair the rotator cuff, that is the muscle around the shoulder that helps in moving the shoulder and stabilize it. The patients should consider treating shoulder impingement as it is the major cause of shoulder pain. Elbow surgery The elbow is a hinge joint which allows the rotation of the forearm. The problems related to elbow may be including swelling, pain, tingling sensation or swelling. Tennis elbow is the inflammation of tendons on the outer side of the elbow joint. Golfers elbow will be similar inflammation on the inner side of the elbow joint. These both the conditions can be painful for the patient for a longer time which can cause significant restrictions on a day to day activity. In a majority of the cases, these both problems can be treated with a combination of physiotherapy, elbow braces, and appropriate injection techniques. In rare cases like in less than 5%, the surgery is required.
