Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique used in the treatment of sports injuries. It involves the use of a fiber-optic camera, which we place into a joint through a small incision in order to visualize ligaments, cartilage, and soft tissue. Through another small incision, we can then use small instruments to remove or repair broken or damaged tissue.
Shoulder arthroscopy with synovectomy is surgery for patients with adhesive capsulitis that has been unresolved with physical therapy, NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories), or steroid injections. This procedure will improve range of motions and decrease pain.
