What is shoulder surgery?
Shoulder surgery is a specialized operation that specifically targets problems affecting the complex shoulder joint. It encompasses various surgical procedures, including arthroscopic surgery, which aims to treat a variety of disorders, ranging from rotator cuff injuries to recurrent dislocation.
Surgical procedures involving the shoulder, particularly those aimed at treating soft tissue issues around the shoulder blade, demand careful attention to minimize risks such as blood clots.
When preparing for shoulder surgery, a comprehensive approach includes essential steps such as local anesthesia. These blood tests provide crucial insights into your overall health and any potential concerns that might impact the surgery. In some cases, the use of blood thinners may be discussed as part of the surgical plan to minimize the risk of complications.
Rotator cuff injuries and their surgical treatment
The rotator cuff is a set of tendons and muscles that stabilizes the shoulder. Chronic pain or a reduced range of motion may indicate an injury. Orthopedic shoulder surgery specifically targets these disorders, thanks to a targeted and minimal operation.
When considering shoulder surgery, the advancements in medical techniques, particularly arthroscopic procedures, have revolutionized treatments like rotator cuff repair.
Shoulder instability and surgical options to stabilize it
Shoulder instability may result from recurrent dislocation, causing pain and discomfort. Let’s not forget that the shoulder is part of the most used and mobile appendage of the human body. To facilitate its locomotion, it is therefore essential for this limb to be stable and functional. A shoulder operation is then considered, via arthroscopic surgery, to restore the stability of this complex joint and allow for a return to sports activities.
