Shoulder Replacement (Arthroplasty)

Shoulder replacement or “arthroplasty” is the most common and successful operation for arthritis. Similar to hip replacement and knee replacement it involves removing the arthritic joint surfaces and replacing them with a metal or plastic “prosthesis” or implant. Read more about shoulder replacement.

Shoulder Arthroscopy

Shoulder Arthroscopy is a form of keyhole surgery used to diagnose and treat problems of the shoulder joint. An arthroscope (which is an instrument for the examination of the inside of joints consisting of a steel tube arthroscope fibre optic system) is inserted into the cavity of the shoulder via a small incision.

Rotator Cuff Tear Surgery

A complete rotator cuff tear will not heal and generally complete tendon tears require surgery to allow the healing process to take place. The surgery can be performed either arthroscopically (keyhole surgery) or through an open technique. Read more about rotator cuff tear surgery.
