Shoulder pain can indicate a number of medical conditions, including rotator cuff tendonitis and bursitis. These are usually the result of inflammation and irritation caused by a shoulder injury or disease, and if left untreated, can cause further complications and chronic pain.
Shoulder arthroscopy is a type of surgery that uses a tiny camera to examine or repair any injured or inflamed tissues around your shoulder joint. It is a keyhole procedure that aims to relieve pressure from inflamed shoulder tendons, and should result in pain-free mobility.
It’s common to use shoulder arthroscopy to treat many diseases of the shoulder or various injuries, including impingement, osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder or chronic tendonitis. The most common procedures include decompression, distal clavicle excision and rotator cuff repair.
Distal clavicle excision and rotator cuff repair
Impingement in the shoulder is a painful condition – symptoms include difficulty reaching up behind the back and pain when using the arms overhead. This type of shoulder pain is caused when the structures in the joint have narrowed, causing parts to rub or pinch, and is usually treated with distal clavicle excision. This keyhole surgery removes the end of the clavicle, helping to relieve pain and improve mobility.
Another common cause of shoulder pain is rotator cuff injury. This is usually treated via keyhole surgery, where the tendon is reattached to the upper arm bone.
