A shoulder injury can be restored with a minimally invasive surgery using a shoulder arthroscopy. This medical equipment now enables surgeons to perform surgical procedures on inflamed and torn tendons and muscles around the shoulder joint. To add on, it can also be used to treat a frozen shoulder, shoulder instability and shoulder dislocation.
A shoulder arthroscopy uses a tiny camera to look inside your shoulder joint, so as to aid diagnosis or treatment of any joint disorder. In other words, the equipment used includes a camera and magnifying lens, which relays the image to the TV monitor. This enables the orthopedic surgeon to clearly refer to the images while performing the surgery. Since the device ranges from 2-5 diameters, the surgery can be performed with only a small incision.
