Pain with overhead movements may indicate inflammation of the rotator cuff and bursa. Sometimes a result of repetitive movement, the surgeon can open up and alleviate pressure on the inflamed tissues. This can be done through the arthroscope.
ROTATOR CUFF TEAR
Impingement that goes unresolved may lead to a tear of the rotator cuff. These can be partial or complete tears that require arthroscopic surgery to repair.
LABRAL OR SLAP TEARS
Certain structures in the shoulder can be stretched out or torn that result in shoulder instability. When this happens, your shoulder joint can be moved out of place either partially (subluxation) or entirely (dislocation). Arthroscopic surgery can be performed to restore stability to the shoulder joint.
