In arthroscopy, your doctor looks inside the joint with a tiny camera to diagnose and treat joint problems. With shoulder arthroscopy, the doctor can see inside the shoulder without making a large incision. The latest cameras provide higher resolution, so this procedure is even more effective. If needed, our shoulder specialists can perform complex surgery through the scope.
Your doctor may recommend arthroscopy for shoulder problems including:
- Damaged cartilage
- Shoulder instability
- Torn ligaments or tendons
- Torn rotator cuff
- Bone spur or inflammation around the rotator cuff
- Shoulder impingement syndrome
