Shoulder Arthroscopy

Mehmet İşyar, M.D. Prof

Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to observe, diagnose and treat the inside of the shoulder joint. It is performed by looking inside the shoulder joint with a thin tube and camera called an arthroscope. Shoulder arthroscopy is commonly used to diagnose and treat shoulder pain, injuries, impingement syndromes or other shoulder problems.

Shoulder arthroscopy can be performed for the following purposes:

Diagnosis: To observe the inside of the shoulder joint to find the source of the problem causing shoulder pain or discomfort.
Treatment: To perform surgical interventions to correct or relieve damage inside the shoulder. For example, repairing torn tendons or removing bone fragments.
Rehabilitation: Directing physical therapy and rehabilitation to speed up the healing process and help strengthen the shoulder after surgery on the shoulder joint.

Shoulder arthroscopy has several advantages over traditional open surgery. These advantages include:

Less Scarring: The small incisions made for shoulder arthroscopy are smaller and have a lower risk of scarring compared to the large incisions of traditional open surgery.
Less Pain and Bleeding: The minimally invasive approach is often associated with less pain and bleeding.
Faster Recovery: Patients usually recover faster and have a shorter hospital stay after shoulder arthroscopy.
