Who is a Candidate for Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery?

Who is a candidate for arthroscopic shoulder?<



Patients with shoulder pain or limited shoulder function may be candidates for arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Most people who suffer from a shoulder injury and who have not found the relief they need through nonoperative treatments may benefit from a minimally invasive surgical procedure. The information in this brochure will help you better understand the anatomy and function of the shoulder, as well as the effects on the shoulder of a rotator cuff tear or the condition known as "shoulder instability." In addition, it will guide you through the steps of arthroscopic shoulder surgery for the treatment of these conditions.

Ask your physician if Shoulder Arthroscopy is a good option for you.
