Shoulder arthroscopy

The shoulder arthroscopy is a small surgery which can be performed in or around the shoulder to repair the most common injuries or illnesses. The examination will be carried out through a tool called an arthroscope.

Prof. Dr. Elgeadi's team has nationally and internationally recognized professionals, with extensive experience in shoulder arthroscopy.

It is a minimally invasive shoulder surgery, that is, they will produce less damage than any other type of open surgery.

Resolving doubts…

Subacromial syndrome is a condition in which the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa become inflamed and compressed under the acromion, causing pain and limitation of shoulder movement.

Common symptoms include pain in the lateral or anterior part of the shoulder, weakness, and difficulty lifting heavy objects. It can be caused by overuse, trauma, or structural problems with the shoulder.

Initial treatment may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and activity modifications. In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to relieve compression and repair damaged tissues.

Rotator cuff pathologies are injuries to the tendons that make up this group of muscles and are responsible for stabilizing and moving the shoulder. These injuries can include partial or complete tears. 

Typical symptoms include shoulder pain, weakness, and difficulty lifting or moving the arm. Rotator cuff pathologies can be caused by trauma, overuse, or age-related degeneration.

Treatment can range from physical therapy and pain medications to surgery to repair damaged tendons, especially in cases of complete tears or in people who do not respond to conservative treatment. 

Pathologies of the long head of the biceps refer to injuries or disorders that affect the tendon of the long head of the biceps muscle in the shoulder. These may include tendinitis, partial tears, or complete tears.

Symptoms can range from pain and weakness in the shoulder, to a "pop" or "clicking" sensation when performing certain movements. These pathologies can be caused by trauma, repetitive movements or aging. 

Treatment may include physical therapy, pain medications, and activity modifications. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or remove the damaged tendon.

Shoulder instability refers to a condition in which the shoulder joint moves out of its normal position, which can result in episodes of partial or complete dislocation. 

Common symptoms include sharp pain, a feeling of instability, weakness, and limitation of shoulder movement. Shoulder instability can be caused by trauma, ligamentous laxity, or anatomical malformations. 

Treatment may include physical therapy to strengthen the muscles that stabilize the shoulder. 

Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique, which allows the approach to shoulder pathologies, through millimeter incisions in the skin.

Through the incisions, the necessary material is introduced to address the injury and apply the most appropriate treatment, allowing the patient to regain mobility and quality of life.

Shoulder arthroscopy is a technique carried out by a team of traumatologists specializing in shoulder arthroscopy in Madrid, which allows visualization of the joint using an arthroscope connected to a high-resolution screen.

First of all, they perform small incisions in the skin, through which the arthroscope is introduced. The pathology to be treated is observed and the necessary instruments are introduced.

Typically, the patient receives general anesthesia, this Shoulder surgery lasts between 15 and 90 minutes, depending on the characteristics and symptoms presented by the patient.

As a general rule, the patient is discharged within hours after the intervention, since it is a relatively short and non-invasive operation. Normally, an anti-inflammatory treatment is prescribed to help relieve any possible shoulder pain that the patient may have after surgery.

In most cases the shoulder recovery is fast and without complications. It is common that the days after the intervention the patient requires the use of a shoulder immobilizer. As well as, rehabilitative treatment supervised by a specialized physiotherapist.

There are many pathologies that can be treated with shoulder arthroscopy, significantly improving the patient's quality of life. Some of them are the following:

  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Biceps tendon injury
  • Shoulder osteoarthritis
  • Shoulder dislocations
  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Labrum and SLAP injuries (“anterior to posterior labral injury”)
