Arthroscopic surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of elbow and shoulder injuries
Mr Sinha is highly experienced in the use of arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery to diagnose and treat injuries to the elbow and shoulder in sportspeople. Using a fine fibre optic probe with an attached camera, he is able to view the insides of the joints and identify any damage to bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. He can then go on to treat many common injuries such as dislocations, ACJ injuries, tendon tears and impingement problems caused by bony spurs using tiny instruments attached to the probe.
Compared to open surgery, arthroscopic elbow and shoulder surgery is associated with less scarring, less surgical trauma, less postoperative pain and quicker recovery times. It is also useful where there is a danger of damaging overlying structures, however there are cases where an open procedure may be more appropriate and Mr Sinha is able to offer his expert opinion in each particular case.
