Shoulder

Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder replacement when the ball of the joint is replaced with metal and the socket is made of plastic.

Shoulder Resurfacing

This surgery replaces the damaged or diseased part of the humerus head, or the ‘ball,’ with a metal implant.

Arthroscopic: Bankart Repair

Often used to repair a labrum tear, the tissue around your shoulder socket. Anchors are placed in the bone that your labrum surrounds, and are stitched up to pull the labrum back into place.

Arthroscopic: Rotator Cuff Repair

The rotator cuff holds the head of the humerus into the shoulder socket. This surgery is performed with a small camera and tools that will allow the surgeon to perform the necessary repair, which may include sutures or anchors.

Biceps Tenodesis

This surgery allows the surgeon to repair the biceps tendon in your shoulder, and fixes tendons that are partially or completely torn away from the bone. This involves creating an opening in your humerus to place the tendon in, and anchoring it in place.

Distal Clavicle Excision (Resection)

 A minimally invasive procedure where the end of the clavicle at the acromioclavicular joint. This decompresses the joint with the aim of relieving pain or impaired movement caused by arthritis or impingement.

SLAP Repair

A SLAP tear happens where the biceps tendon meets the labrum in your shoulder. Your surgeon will determine the best form of repair, which may include trimming the labrum, placing anchors and sutures, or adjusting the biceps tendon.

Shoulder Impingement Surgery

Subacromial impingement is a pain you may feel when lifting your arm, caused by tendons in your arm rubbing against your shoulder blade, specifically the acromion. Your surgeon will reshape your acromion and repair tissue as necessary to combat the issue.

Treatment of Labral Tears

Labral detachment can be repaired utilizing small screw anchors with sutures. The anchors are inserted into the edge of the rim of the socket. The sutures are passed around the cartilage rim and tied.

Treatment of Shoulder Dislocation

Initial treatment is manipulation of the ball back into the socket. This is followed by the use of a sling or immobilizer. The recommended time of immobilization is decreasing.
