Open Shoulder Stabilization
Open shoulder stabilization is a surgical procedure performed to treat a condition called shoulder instability. Shoulder instability is a chronic condition that causes the frequent dislocation of the shoulder joint. A dislocation occurs when the end of the humerus (the ball portion) partially or completely dislocates from the glenoid (the socket portion) of the shoulder.
AC Joint Stabilization
Acromioclavicular (AC) joint stabilization is a surgical procedure employed to treat severe cases of AC joint dislocation. AC joint dislocation is the separation of the collar bone or clavicle from the acromion (the top portion of the shoulder blade or scapula at the outer edge of the shoulder) due to severe trauma.
Suprascapular Nerve Release
Suprascapular nerve release, also known as suprascapular nerve decompression, is a surgical procedure that is usually performed in a minimally invasive arthroscopic technique to release the compressed suprascapular nerve. The suprascapular nerve can be compressed or injured at a couple of common locations in the shoulder, either the spinoglenoid notch or the suprascapular notch.
AC Joint Arthroplasty
Acromioclavicular (AC) joint arthroplasty, also known as the Mumford procedure or distal clavicle resection, is a surgical procedure performed to mainly treat osteoarthritis of the AC joint or AC joint arthrosis. The procedure involves removal of less than a centimeter of the end of the clavicle nearest to the acromion along with some reshaping of the AC joint to enable pain-free motion of the joint.
Arthroscopic Latarjet for Shoulder Instability
Arthroscopic latarjet for shoulder instability is a novel minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat chronic shoulder instability or anterior shoulder dislocation, usually caused by bone loss or a fracture of the glenoid. The procedure is performed using small incisions
Anterior Shoulder Stabilization
Anterior shoulder stabilization is a surgical procedure performed to treat a condition called anterior shoulder instability. Anterior shoulder instability, also known as anterior glenohumeral instability, is a shoulder condition in which damage to the soft tissues or bone causes the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) to dislocate or sublux from the glenoid fossa, compromising the function of the shoulder.
Shoulder Joint Replacement
Total shoulder replacement surgery is performed to relieve symptoms of severe shoulder pain and disability due to arthritis. In this surgery, the damaged articulating parts of the shoulder joint are removed and replaced with artificial prostheses. Replacement of both the humeral head and the socket is called a total shoulder replacement.
Reverse Shoulder Replacement
Conventional surgical methods such as total shoulder joint replacement are not very effective in the treatment of rotator cuff arthropathy. Reverse total shoulder replacement is an advanced surgical technique specifically designed for rotator cuff tear arthropathy, a condition where you suffer from both shoulder arthritis and a rotator cuff tear.
Posterior Shoulder Stabilization
Posterior shoulder stabilisation is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of a condition called posterior shoulder instability. Posterior shoulder instability, also known as posterior glenohumeral instability, is a condition in which the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) dislocates or subluxes posteriorly from the glenoid (socket portion of the shoulder) as a result of significant trauma, compromising shoulder function.
Rotator Cuff Repair
Rotator cuff repair is a surgery to repair an injured or torn rotator cuff. It is usually performed arthroscopically on an outpatient basis. An arthroscope, a small, fiber-optic instrument consisting of a lens, light source, and video camera. The camera projects images of the inside of the joint onto a large monitor, allowing your doctor to look for any damage, assess the type of injury and repair it. Large rotator cuff tears may require open surgery.
Arthroscopic Bankart Repair
The shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) is a ball and socket joint, where the head of the upper arm bone (humerus) attaches to the shoulder socket (glenoid cavity). The shoulder socket is extremely shallow and therefore needs additional support to keep the shoulder bones from dislocating. The labrum, a cuff of cartilage that encircles the shoulder socket, helps serve this purpose by forming a cup for the humeral head to move within.
Arthroscopic Frozen Shoulder Release
An arthroscopic frozen shoulder release is a minimally-invasive shoulder surgery performed to relieve pain and restore normal function using a special instrument called an “arthroscope”. A frozen shoulder, also called “adhesive capsulitis”, is a painful condition in which the shoulder becomes stiff and inflamed resulting in limited movement of the joint.
The shoulder joint provides a wide range of movement to the upper extremity, but overuse or trauma can cause instability to the joint. The Latarjet procedure is a surgical procedure performed to treat shoulder instability by relocating a piece of bone with an attached tendon to the shoulder joint.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an arthroscope. The arthroscope consists of a light system and camera that projects images of the surgical site onto a computer screen for your doctor to clearly view.
Revision Open Labral Repair (Revision Bankart)
Revision open labral repair, also known as a revision Bankart surgery, is an open surgery performed to stabilize the shoulder joint after an unsuccessful primary labral repair surgery that may have been done either arthroscopically or as open surgery.
AC Joint Repair
AC joint repair is a surgical procedure performed to repair damaged or torn ligaments and tendons of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint. Depending on the severity of the injury, the surgery can be done through tiny keyhole incisions arthroscopically, or as open surgery through a relatively larger skin incision.
Subacromial decompression is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of a condition called shoulder impingement. In shoulder impingement, the degree of space between the rotator cuff tendon and shoulder blade is decreased due to irritation and swelling of the bursa or due to development of bone spurs.
Revision Rotator Cuff Surgery
Revision rotator cuff surgery is a procedure done to repair a re-tear in the rotator cuff after a failed initial rotator cuff surgery. The revision surgery is generally more complex, as it attempts to repair a rotator cuff that has been torn multiple times.
Complex Fracture Repair of the Shoulder
Complex fracture repair of the shoulder is a surgical procedure that involves the use of surgical plates and screws to repair a severe fracture of the bones that form the shoulder joint. Complex shoulder fractures are usually accompanied by ligament and tendon injuries that may also need to be repaired.
Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Reconstruction
Shoulder separation can usually be managed by non-surgical treatments. In cases of a severe separation of the AC joint, your surgeon may perform a surgical repair or use a tissue graft to reconstruct the damaged ligaments. An autograft (from your own body) or allograft (from a donor) of the anterior tibia or hamstring may be used. Your surgeon might also suggest artificial non-absorbable material to graft the damaged ligaments.
Shoulder Fracture Care
A break in the bone that makes up the shoulder joint is called a shoulder fracture. The clavicle (collarbone) and end of the humerus (upper arm bone) closest to the shoulder are the bones that usually are fractured. The scapula, or shoulder blade, is not easily fractured because of its protective cover of surrounding muscles and chest tissue.
Minimally Invasive Shoulder Joint Replacement
Shoulder joint replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces damaged bone surfaces with artificial humeral and glenoid components to relieve pain and improve functional ability in the shoulder joint. It can be performed by a traditional open approach or through a minimally invasive approach.
