Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder replacement surgery, or shoulder arthroplasty, involves replacing the damaged parts of the shoulder joint with artificial components. This procedure is often recommended for severe arthritis or significant joint damage. It can relieve pain and restore shoulder function, allowing for improved mobility and quality of life.

Labrum Repair

Labrum repair is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at repairing tears in the labrum, the cartilage that helps stabilize the shoulder joint. This surgery can significantly improve shoulder stability, reduce pain, and restore range of motion. It is particularly beneficial for athletes and individuals with shoulder instability.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff repair involves surgically repairing torn tendons in the rotator cuff, a group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder. This procedure can alleviate pain, restore strength, and improve shoulder function. It is commonly performed arthroscopically, allowing for a quicker recovery and less postoperative pain.

Acromioplasty of the Shoulder

Acromioplasty is a surgical procedure to remove a small part of the acromion, a bone spur in the shoulder. This surgery relieves pressure on the rotator cuff tendons, reducing pain and inflammation. It is often performed arthroscopically, resulting in less tissue damage and faster recovery.

Shoulder Resurfacing (Hemiarthroplasty)

Shoulder resurfacing, or hemiarthroplasty, involves replacing the damaged surface of the humeral head (upper arm bone) with a metal cap. This procedure is less invasive than a total shoulder replacement and is ideal for younger patients with arthritis or significant joint damage.

Stemmed Hemiarthroplasty

Stemmed hemiarthroplasty is similar to shoulder resurfacing but includes a stem that is inserted into the humerus. This procedure is used for patients with severe arthritis or fractures that cannot be treated with shoulder resurfacing alone. It provides pain relief and improved shoulder function.

Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive technique used to diagnose and treat various shoulder conditions. During the procedure, a small camera (arthroscope) is inserted into the shoulder joint, allowing the surgeon to visualize and repair damage with minimal tissue disruption. This approach typically results in less pain, quicker recovery, and smaller scars.
