Shoulder Surgery specializes in arthroscopic shoulder surgery and offers diagnosis and treatment for diverse shoulder complications:
- Chronic impingement syndrome of the shoulder, including management, surveillance and arthroscopy;
- Shoulder instability (repeated shoulder dislocation) due to shoulder arthroscopy;
- Complicated shoulder girdle fractures;
- Degenerative changes in the shoulder - complete shoulder dislocation;
- Shoulder joint replacement surgery.
Numerous surgeries are conducted using advanced microscopic techniques, while focusing on reduced hospitalization and accelerated rehabilitation for patients. Most of the surgeries are conducted on an outpatient basis.
- Shoulder pain and mobility deficits resulting from shoulder rotator cuff injuries involving tears of the ligaments (generally not incurred during trauma).
- Shoulder instability, predominantly among young people, resulting from full or partial shoulder joint dislocation
- Shoulder fracture (inside the joint itself), fractured arm or shoulder
- "Frozen Shoulder": restricted shoulder mobility accompanied by pain
- Degenerative joint disease of the shoulder and shoulder infections
Shoulder specialists diagnose and treat a wide variety of problems.
The vast majority of shoulder complications does not necessitate surgery and is well treated by a multifaceted strategy comprising the following elements: a guided physical treatment plan, medication, and injections.
Nonetheless, when required, the doctors perform arthroscopic or open surgery to resolve the problem. The following are the surgical procedures conducted:
- Stabilization of repeated shoulder dislocations.
- Repair of full and partial rotator cuff tears.
- Debridement of infected tissue in cases of extended bursitis.
- Partial or total shoulder joint replacement required in cases of acute arthritis, deformation or shattered shoulder fractures.
- Fracture fixation to stabilize the shoulder area.
