Treatments, operations and tests

Carpal tunnel release

Carpal tunnel surgery can usually be done on a day case basis. The operation may be done using an endoscope, a thin flexible telescope that is inserted into a small cut in the wrist. Images are transmitted to a screen, allowing the surgeon to see inside the wrist. In a more traditional, open operation, a longer cut is made in the palm of the hand. The endoscopic repair leaves a smaller scar, and usually allows people to get back to their usual activities more quickly. However, there may be a slightly higher risk of nerve damage with endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery

Rotator Cuff Repair

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons over the shoulder joint, if injured or even torn they can require surgery to repair. Surgery is performed under general anaesthetic, though the invasiveness depends on the techniques used and the amount of damage that needs to be repaired. A number of injuries to the rotator cuff tendons and ligaments can be treated with physiotherapy.

Shoulder arthroscopy (keyhole investigation of the shoulder)

Shoulder arthroscopy is surgery that uses a tiny camera called an arthroscope to examine or repair the tissues inside or around your shoulder joint. The arthroscope is inserted through a small incision (cut) in your skin. Most people receive general anesthesia before this surgery. This means you will be unconscious and unable to feel pain. Or, you may have regional anesthesia. Your arm and shoulder area will be numbed so that you do not feel any pain in this area. If you receive regional anesthesia, you will also be given medicine to make you very sleepy during the operation.

Shoulder replacement

Shoulder arthroplasty (AHR-thro-plaste) is surgery to replace the shoulder joint. The shoulder joint is where the head (ball) of the humerus meets the glenoid (socket-like end) of the scapula. The humerus is the bone of the upper arm, and the scapula is the shoulder blade. Arthroplasty is usually done in patients with shoulder problems that cause severe or constant pain. These problems include pain from arthritis with narrowing of the joint space or bone spur formation. They may also include non-healing broken bones, severe muscle tears, and bone thinning or softening

Shoulder Surgery (Bursa and Collar Bone)

The shoulder is a complex joint that can fail due to damage to many different components. Repair depends on the actual damage and an assessment by a doctor, however most shoulder surgeries are performed under general anaesthetic. Surgery can be arthroscopic or open, but again, this is a decision that should be reached between the surgeon and the patient.
