Shoulder Arthroscopy

This surgery is performed to diagnose and treat shoulder pathological problems such as acromioclavicular osteoarthritis, bicep brachii tears , rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder and recurrent anterior shoulder dislocation. During the surgery, the surgeon will pump normal saline into the articular capsule of the shoulder joint, in order to create a space for examination and treatment. A wound could be as large as 10-15 cm in traditional surgery. However, shoulder arthroscopy allows surgeon to provide surgery by only incising a few small openings.

 

Arthroscopic Shoulder Release + Subacromial Decompression (SAD)

Arthroscopic shoulder release is performed to remove inflamed or thickened abnormal capsule, in order to resume normal range of movement of shoulder. In subacromial decompression, the surgeon will use keyhole technique to insert an arthroscope into articular capsule of the shoulder joint. the abnormal acromion bone spur or thickened tissue will then be cut or shaved.

 

Arthroscopic Superior Labral Tear from Anterior to Posterior (SLAP) Repair

Superior labral tear from anterior to posterior (SLAP) is a tear of the labrum above the middle of the glenoid. It may sometimes involve the biceps tendon. The surgeon will cut and remove torn flap, in order to correct the problems. If the biceps tendon tear happens, the surgeon will use anchoring devices to repair and reattach the tendon.

 

Arthroscopic Bankart Repair

Use techniques of arthroscopy to remove abnormal tissue and repair the damaged body site in order to treat shoulder pathological problems.

 

Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair

A rotator cuff is a group of four tendons in shoulder to allow shoulder movement. Acute injury or degeneration can cause the tendon tear. Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a surgery reattach the torn tendon to the bone using anchoring devices and arthroscope.
