Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery

Arthroscopic shoulder surgery treats shoulder joint tissues such as tears to muscles, tendons and cartilage. An arthroscope, a small camera at the end of tube, is inserted into the shoulder by small incisions to view the area. The incisions are also used to place surgical tools for repair. Shoulder arthroscopy is typically done for an instable shoulder, a torn rotator cuff, a damaged biceps tendon, swelling, bone spurs or arthritis.
