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.
The hospital aims to offer fixed care packages to clarify all costs of treatments. If you have not been offered a package, please do not hesitate to contact the hospital for more details of your treatment plan.
