Shoulder Fracture Care

Picture of Shoulder Fracture Care

A break in the bone that makes up the shoulder joint is called a shoulder fracture. The clavicle (collarbone) and end of the humerus (upper arm bone) closest to the shoulder are the bones that usually are fractured.

Proximal Biceps Tenodesis

Proximal biceps tenodesis is the surgical reattachment of a torn proximal biceps tendon, which connects the upper part of your biceps muscle to the shoulder.

Distal Tibial Allograft Glenoid Reconstruction

Picture of Distal Tibial Allograft Glenoid Reconstruction

Glenoid reconstruction with distal tibial allograft is a surgical technique employed in the treatment of recurrent shoulder instability or glenohumeral instability secondary to significant glenoid bone loss and to restore the glenoid arc and maintain glenohumeral congruency.

AC Joint Stabilization

Picture of AC Joint Stabilization

Acromioclavicular (AC) joint stabilization is a surgical procedure employed to treat severe cases of AC joint dislocation. AC joint dislocation is the separation of the collar bone or clavicle from the acromion (the top portion of the shoulder blade or scapula at the outer edge of the shoulder) due to severe trauma.

Outpatient Shoulder Replacement

Picture of Outpatient Shoulder Replacement

Outpatient shoulder replacement is a surgery that does not require an overnight hospital stay. Shoulder replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged or worn out articulating surfaces of the shoulder joint (surfaces of the humeral head and glenoid socket) are removed and replaced with artificial prostheses made of metal or plastic.

Suprascapular Nerve Release

Picture of Suprascapular Nerve Release

Suprascapular nerve release, also known as suprascapular nerve decompression, is a surgical procedure that is usually performed in a minimally invasive arthroscopic technique to release the compressed suprascapular nerve. The suprascapular nerve can be compressed or injured at a couple of common locations in the shoulder, either the spinoglenoid notch or the suprascapular notch.

Arthroscopic Latarjet for Shoulder Instability

Picture of Arthroscopic Latarjet for Shoulder Instability

Arthroscopic latarjet for shoulder instability is a novel minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat chronic shoulder instability or anterior shoulder dislocation, usually caused by bone loss or a fracture of the glenoid. The procedure is performed using small incisions, an arthroscope - a small flexible tube with a light and tiny camera at its end - and thin surgical instruments to treat shoulder instability by relocating a piece of bone with an attached tendon to the shoulder joint.

Anterior Shoulder Stabilization

Picture of Anterior Shoulder Stabilization

Anterior shoulder stabilization is a surgical procedure performed to treat a condition called anterior shoulder instability. Anterior shoulder instability, also known as anterior glenohumeral instability, is a shoulder condition in which damage to the soft tissues or bone causes the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) to dislocate or sublux from the glenoid fossa, compromising the function of the shoulder.

Ultrasound-Guided Shoulder Injections

Picture of Ultrasound-Guided Shoulder Injections

An ultrasound is a common imaging technique that employs high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs and other internal structures of the body. These images provide valuable information about the underlying pathology of tissues and assists with diagnosis and planning the treatment of a condition.

Arthroscopic Bankart Repair

Picture of Arthroscopic Bankart Repair

The shoulder joint (glenohumeral joint) is a ball and socket joint, where the head of the upper arm bone (humerus) attaches to the shoulder socket (glenoid cavity). The shoulder socket is extremely shallow and therefore needs additional support to keep the shoulder bones from dislocating. The labrum, a cuff of cartilage that encircles the shoulder socket, helps serve this purpose by forming a cup for the humeral head to move within.

Shoulder Labrum Reconstruction

Picture of Shoulder Labrum Reconstruction

The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint. A ball at the top of the upper arm bone (the humerus) fits neatly into a socket, called the glenoid, which is part of the shoulder blade (scapula). The labrum is a ring of fibrous cartilage surrounding the glenoid, which helps in stabilizing the shoulder joint. The biceps tendon is attached inside the shoulder joint at the superior labrum of the joint.

Shoulder Stabilization

Picture of Shoulder Stabilization

Shoulder stabilization surgery is performed to improve stability and function to the shoulder joint and prevent recurrent dislocations. It can be performed arthroscopically, depending on your particular condition, with much smaller incisions. Arthroscopic stabilization is a surgical procedure to treat chronic instability of the shoulder joint.

Labral Debridement and Repair

Picture of Labral Debridement and Repair

Labral debridement and repair is a surgical procedure to remove loose and damaged cartilage in the labrum and to secure the torn labrum to its normal attachment to the bone.

Capsular Release

Picture of Capsular Release

A capsular release of the shoulder is surgery performed to release a tight and stiff shoulder capsule, a condition called frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis. The procedure is usually performed arthroscopically through keyhole-size incisions.

Partial Shoulder Replacement

Picture of Partial Shoulder Replacement

Partial shoulder replacement, also called shoulder hemiarthroplasty, is a surgical procedure during which the upper bone in the arm (humerus) is replaced with a prosthetic metal implant, whereas the other half of the shoulder joint (glenoid or socket) is left intact.

Periprosthetic Shoulder Fracture Fixation

Picture of Periprosthetic Shoulder Fracture Fixation

A periprosthetic shoulder fracture is a fracture that occurs in the bone adjacent to a shoulder prosthesis.

Viscosupplementation for Shoulder Arthritis

Picture of Viscosupplementation for Shoulder Arthritis

Viscosupplementation is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the injection of a hyaluronic acid preparation into the shoulder to treat arthritis. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance which is present in the joint fluid that acts as a shock absorber and enhances lubrication.

Shoulder Resurfacing

Picture of Shoulder Resurfacing

The shoulder is an active joint is prone to injuries and may also get affected by conditions such as arthritis, which results in impaired functioning and related discomfort. The traditional method of treatment for such conditions is shoulder joint replacement. However, advances in technology have resulted in a superior alternative technique known as shoulder resurfacing.

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Reconstruction

Picture of Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Reconstruction

The acromioclavicular (AC) joint is one of the joints present within your shoulder. It is formed between a bony projection at the top of the shoulder blade (acromion) and the outer end of the clavicle (collarbone). The joint is enclosed by a capsule and supported by ligaments.

Triceps Repair

Picture of Triceps Repair

Triceps repair is a surgical procedure that involves the repair of a ruptured (torn) triceps tendon. A tendon is a tough band of fibrous tissue which connects muscle to bone and works together with muscles in moving your arms, fingers, legs, and toes. The triceps tendons connect the triceps muscles to the shoulder blade and elbow in your arm.
