We know the display on high definition monitor inside as joint arthroscopy. Through a small incision punctate arthroscope sheath is introduced, then the joint is distended with physiological saline to be able to work comfortably. In this way the joint is displayed using an optical and a light source, interconnected to a miniature video camera. Other incisions to surgically intervene pinpoint articulation with minimally invasive arthroscopic instruments are carried out.

Shoulder arthroscopy has many advantages over conventional techniques. Mainly, the comfort is great for the patient, and also is a technique painless and does not require hospitalization.

We can apply this practice minimally invasive to the vast majority of shoulder pathologies or diseases. By arthroscopy is possible to stabilize unstable shoulders that luxan repeatedly, or repair tendons and eliminate shoulder tendon calcifications.

Complications are minor intervention to be a minimally invasive and long-term results are the same as those of more classic open techniques.



The postoperative shoulder arthroscopy, as discussed above, is comfortable and slightly painful. What should you do patient is only wearing a shoulder immobilizer for several weeks, which may be removed for their own health and the realization of various recuperative exercises. The total recovery time will depend on the type of existing injury.
