Arthroscopic shoulder surgery:
Nowadays, many surgeries are performed without opening the surgical site and through the camera and making one or more small incisions, one of these is arthroscopic shoulder surgery. In this surgery, three to four incisions are made and shoulder problems are resolved through robotic surgical instruments and cameras.
The use of arthroscopy instead of open surgery reduces pain and speeds up the recovery of patients, and people return to their normal lives very soon and can perform their daily activities.
Shoulder arthroscopic procedure:
Although the surgery is short, it should be performed in the operating room under general anesthesia and requires analgesia.
The area of the surgery is sterilized and a short sale is struck to pass the arthroscope. (Silent theatre is a tube with fiber optics and cameras inside to see the location of the joint) one or more other incisions are made to pass other surgical instruments. After repairing the joint, the incision sites will be stitched and closed. The stitches are bandaged and the shoulder is fixed with a brace so that it has no movement.
