Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery is Available at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s Reno, NV, Office
Arthroscopic shoulder surgery is one of the many procedures available to Reno, Nevada, area residents at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. Because this procedure requires a much smaller incision than that used in open shoulder surgery, it offers many benefits as compared to traditional procedures, including less pain and stiffness, a lower risk of wound complications, a shorter hospital stay, and less recovery time.
The professionals at our Reno, NV, office can use arthroscopic shoulder surgery to treat various shoulder conditions, including the following:
- Bone spurs
- Frozen shoulder
- Impingement syndrome
- Labrum tears
- Rotator cuff tears
During a minimally invasive procedure, we begin by making a small incision in the shoulder joint, through which we then insert a small camera (the arthroscope). The camera is connected to a large video monitor, providing us with the closeup view that we need in order to make any necessary repairs using miniature surgical instruments. Even in cases where surgery is not necessary, we often use arthroscopy to inspect the shoulder and diagnose various shoulder conditions.
