Shoulder arthroscopy is surgery that uses a tiny camera called an arthroscope to examine or repair the tissues inside or around your shoulder joint. The arthroscope is inserted through a small cut (incision) in your skin.
Injury, overuse, and age-related wear and tear are responsible for most shoulder problems. Shoulder arthroscopy may relieve painful symptoms of many problems that damage the rotator cuff tendons, labrum, articular cartilage, and other soft tissues surrounding the joint. Common arthroscopic procedures include: Rotator cuff repair; Bone spur removal; Removal or repair of the labrum; Repair of ligaments; Removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage; Repair for recurrent shoulder dislocation.
