All-Arthroscopic Repair

AllArthroscopic Repair

During arthroscopy, surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your shoulder joint. The camera displays pictures on a television screen, and your surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments.

Because the arthroscope and surgical instruments are thin, surgeon can use very small incisions (cuts), rather than the larger incision needed for standard, open surgery.

All-arthroscopic repair is the least invasive method to repair a torn rotator cuff, However this technique need special instruments and much more surgical skill and experiences.

Discuss with your surgeon for pros and cons also complications of each technique.
