Shoulder arthroscopy in the West Midlands
Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique to diagnose and treat problems affecting the shoulder, including rotator cuff damage, shoulder impingement, frozen shoulder, tendon problems and recurrent dislocation. The procedure involves inserting a miniature camera, known as an arthroscope, into the joint by means of a small incision. The arthroscope then sends back images of the internal structures of the shoulder to a television monitor, enabling the surgeon to make a detailed investigation of any symptoms.
Once a shoulder problem has been diagnosed arthroscopically, special instruments can be introduced into the joint through further small incisions to carry out therapeutic procedures such as removal of bone spurs, inflamed tissue or loose cartilage, and repair of the rotator cuff, tendons, ligaments and labrum. Disorders of the acromioclavicular joint can also be treated in this way.
Shoulder arthroscopy is usually performed as day case surgery, with the majority of patients returning home one or two hours after the procedure. The use of small incisions means that recovery from arthroscopic surgery is generally much quicker with fewer complications, compared to open surgery.
A skilled arthroscopic shoulder surgeon, Mr Salama also offers arthroscopic investigation and treatment for elbow and wrist conditions.
