INTRODUCTION

Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgery performed by making small cuts into the shoulder and using a fiber optic camera to view the interior joints of the shoulder. The device used is known as an arthroscope. The surgeons connect the arthroscope to a video screen in the operation room. 

Using this technique, the surgeons can see the area in and around the joint to inspect or repair any damaged tissues. An orthopaedic surgeon may require to make additional small cuts and insert other instruments to fix damages in muscles, ligaments, or cartilage and remove damaged tissue.

Arthroscopy allows for a more specific diagnosis of the shoulder's condition and a particular procedure for multiple shoulder conditions. It is also helpful in determining the need for more treatment options and possible future surgical methods.

TREATMENT SPECIFICATIONS

What is a Shoulder Arthroscopy?

Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that can heal the shoulder disorders in the patient suffering from fractures, joint dislocation or chronic arthritic pain. 

Once the patient undergoes surgery, he can feel considerable relief in the pain and can also regain mobility. After the successful recovery, he can perform daily tasks without any problem. However, in the initial stages after the surgery, the doctor may ask the patient not to put excessive pressure on the joint.

So, the patient must avoid carrying heavy weights or performing any hectic exercises. The physiotherapist will guide him with a few simple physical activities that can help the patient for quick recovery and move the arms up and down without any restrictions.

The patient may suffer little pain for a few days after the surgery, but it will subside slowly and gradually with time and proper dosage of prescribed medications.

 

Who is the Candidate for Shoulder Arthroscopy Treatment?

A person suffering from considerable pain or any other shoulder disorders is an eligible candidate for shoulder arthroscopy. However, the surgeons only consider the patients who do not gain any significant improvement in the conditions by using medications and physiotherapies. 

A few most common conditions that require shoulder arthroscopy treatment are:

  • Severe injuries in the shoulder while playing any outdoor games.
  • Accidents or joint dislocation in athletes
  • A person who cannot move the arm up and down and suffers severe pain in any shoulder movement
  • Restricted functions of the shoulder joint
  • Someone who bears considerable arthritic pain
  • Fracture in the shoulder joint due to accident or any other reason.
  • Wear and tear of ligaments or connecting nerves of the shoulder joint
  • Swelling or inflammation in the joint due to pain or injury.

 

The Procedure for Shoulder Arthroscopy:

The entire proceedings of shoulder arthroscopy treatment are shared below, step by step:

Step 1: Diagnosis and Tests

Following are the test and diagnosis for Shoulder Arthroscopy:

  • Physical examination
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • CT scan
  • EMG (electromyogram).

All imaging tests play an essential role in orthopaedic treatment. It helps in the proper analysis of the internal conditions of nerves, ligaments, bones and joints. Apart from that, it helps in the exact location of disease or damage in the joint.

Study of imaging test reports can help the surgeon to mark the point of surgery appropriately. He can perform the procedure with precision and accuracy.

 

Reasons for Need of Shoulder Arthroscopy:

Causes for the Shoulder Arthroscopy can be:

  • Traumatic damage
  • Dislocation of shoulder joint
  • A disease of the bones or reduction in bone density
  • Overuse of joint.

 

Procedure:

Arthroscopy is an outpatient surgery setting. The proceedings may differ depending on several factors, which includes:

  • Cause of surgery
  • Type of damage or disorder
  • Location and size of joint damage.

The surgeon begins by giving anaesthesia to the patient. However, the kind of anaesthesia used entirely depends on the patient, surgeon, and anesthesiologist. For proceeding with the surgery, two or three short incisions are needed.

It is required to insert the arthroscope and other necessary instruments. The joint is filled with sterilised liquid to allow the surgeon to see more clearly. Most methods take less than one hour to perform.

After the surgery, the patient may be in a restricted `shoulder immobiliser' depending on the kind of surgery conducted. The medical team will provide him with special instructions about whether or not he is allowed to move the arm instantly after the surgery, diet instructions and many more.

On the day of your treatment, the surgeon may restrict you to eat anything substantial for several hours. Eat fresh fruits and light meals. You can return to your regular diet as quickly as you recover and start following your daily routine. Try to eat a healthy, well-adjusted and a balanced diet. Essential nutrients will help you feel better and recover faster.

 

Recovery After the Shoulder Arthroscopy Treatment:

Although arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery, yet it may take several weeks or even months for the pain to subside totally and to restore the movement in the joint. Ice should be applied to reduce ache and inflammation, while you can have additional support through pain killers prescribed by the surgeon for recovery.

A sling should be used initially to defend the shoulder and reduce shoulder moves; this allows the shoulder usual time and space to heal.

Once the shoulder has enough time to recover from the treatment, a physical therapy plan is initiated. The surgeons will recommend a physiotherapist who can provide the necessary guidance. He will teach you stretching, exercises and other physical activities for reconditioning of the shoulder joint. 

It is essential to resume an active lifestyle at the earliest. The length of therapy depends on the kind of surgery and rehabilitation.

 

Complications and Risks After Shoulder Arthroscopy Treatment:

Complications are not common, but there are certain risks involved in the surgery, minor plus treatable. Following are the complications list:

1. Infections

2. Extreme bleeding

3. Blood lumps

4. Injury to blood arteries or nerves

5. Stiffness of shoulder joint 

 

If you wish to avoid the complications, try to keep your shoulder healthy and flexible. Try to keep your joints engaged in some of the other physical activity. Ask your healthcare providers to guide you with support exercises and grasp their instructions correctly.

 

Be available for all scheduled follow-up appointments. Here, the surgeon will check for improvement and possibly remove stitches or staples. Schedule the date before you leave the hospital or as soon as you get home, and be sure to save it. 

 

Factors Affecting the Cost of Shoulder Arthroscopy:

 

Following are the factors that affect the cost of treatment:

  • Type of surgery
  • Type of Improvement Needed
  • Treatment
  • Location of the Hospital
