Shoulder Arthroscopy

Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery used to examine, diagnose, or repair tissues inside or surround the shoulder joint. A tiny camera (arthroscope) is inserted into small incisions and other surgical instruments to improve the shoulder during this procedure. The advantage of shoulder arthroscopy is that it utilizes smaller incisions, and less damage is inflicted upon the surrounding tissues. Shoulder arthroscopy is also less painful than open surgery. If the patient is not responsive to non-surgical treatments like physical therapy, medication, rest, and injections, this surgery might be recommended. Our surgeons at Dines Orthopedic have performed more than 10,000 shoulder arthroscopies to treat conditions such as:
  • Subacromial Impingement
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Labral Tears
  • Biceps Tendonitis
