A complex joint made up of bone, ligament and tendon, the shoulder can be injured by trauma, disease or age. Shoulder surgery may restore flexibility and reduce painful symptoms. Minimally invasive arthroscopic shoulder surgery is only one of the advanced shoulder surgery options available at Florida Hospital.
Several conditions may cause patients to lose functionality in the shoulder. Shoulder surgery may be necessary when other non-surgical options do not improve function and reduce pain. Depending on the patient’s specific condition, total shoulder replacement, partial shoulder replacement surgery or rotator cuff surgery may be necessary.
During minimally invasive shoulder surgery, called arthroscopy, surgeons insert a long, thin tube instrument (arthroscope) through small incisions in the shoulder. A tear in the ligament or tendon can be repaired or replaced through the tube.
This advanced procedure reduces scaring and trauma to the body. Patients usually recover faster and reduce risks.
