A shoulder injury can happen at any moment. Because the shoulder is used constantly during activities at home and work, any type of shoulder problem can dampen your ability to move comfortably. Our orthopedic shoulder surgeon at Advanced Spine & Orthopedics, located in Southlake, TX, has proven experience in surgically treating shoulder pain. The exact type of shoulder surgery recommended depends on the location of your injury.
Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery
Arthroscopic surgery is the primary procedure used for shoulder surgery. Since the shoulder area is difficult to reach through a large incision, the techniques used for arthroscopic surgery makes it ideal for repairing a shoulder pain injury. A small camera is inserted, giving the orthopedic surgeon a clear view of the area being repaired. Our orthopedic shoulder surgeon will help determine if arthroscopic surgery is the best surgical option.
Rotator Cuff Repair
Made up of four tendons that stabilize the shoulder, the rotator cuff keeps the arm bone in the shoulder socket. A torn rotator cuff should be treated to alleviate the shoulder pain. Surgery is usually needed to remove loose fragments in the shoulder area, to make more room in the shoulder area to keep from pinching or to sew the tendon back to the shoulder bone. Based on the location and severity of the injury, our orthopedic shoulder surgeon will be able to determine whether arthroscopic surgery or traditional surgery is needed.
Shoulder Labral Tear Surgery
The most common types of shoulder labral tear surgery options are arthroscopic surgery, traditional surgery or labral debridement. The selection of shoulder labral tear surgery is dependent on where the tear is located and its severity. A full examination from our orthopedic surgeon will give him the information needed to determine the best surgical option.
