- video clip: Arthroscopic Bankart Repair
PLAY VIDEOThis arthroscopic procedure is used to repair a detached labrum. The labrum is a thick band of cartilage attached to the glenoid. It lines the shoulder socket and helps keep the ball of the humerus in place.
- video clip: Arthroscopic Capsular Release
PLAY VIDEOThis minimally-invasive surgery is used to help relieve pain and loss of mobility in the shoulder from adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder). A radiofrequency (RF) probe is inserted into the shoulder. The probe uses RF waves to cut the tissue capsule that surrounds the shoulder joint, allowing the shoulder to move more freely.
- video clip: Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
PLAY VIDEOThis surgical procedure is used to inspect and reattach torn tendons in the shoulder’s rotator cuff. The initial part of the surgery is performed arthroscopically through small tubes. In some cases, open surgery may be needed to repair large tears.
- video clip: Diagnostic Arthroscopy (Shoulder)
PLAY VIDEOThis outpatient procedure is a minimally-invasive surgical technique commonly used to identify problems in the shoulder joint. It is performed with the aid of a specialized camera called an arthroscope.
- video clip: Distal Clavicle Excision (Resection)
PLAY VIDEOThis minimally-invasive procedure helps to relieve pain and loss of motion in the shoulder from arthritis or impingement. During the procedure the end of the clavicle closest to the acromion in the shoulder is removed to allow pain-free movement of the joint.
- video clip: Glenohumeral Debridement
PLAY VIDEOThis minimally-invasive procedure is used to remove tissue in the shoulder joint that has been damaged from arthritis, overuse or injury. The physician uses a small camera, called an arthroscope, which is inserted into the shoulder joint.
- video clip: Shoulder Impingement Surgery
PLAY VIDEOThis outpatient procedure relieves pain by decompressing the tight space around the rotator tendon of the shoulder joint. The surgeon removes the bursa and trims back the acromion bone to allow for normal pain-free motion. In most cases, this procedure is performed arthroscopically.
- video clip: SLAP Repair
PLAY VIDEOThis arthroscopic procedure is performed to repair a tear of the biceps tendon at the point where it connects to the labrum, a ring of cartilage that surrounds the shoulder socket. A tear at this point is called a SLAP (Superior Labrum Anterior-Posterior) tear. SLAP repair is performed under general and regional anesthesia, and patients usually leave the hospital the same day.
