Shoulder Arthroscopy for Recurrent Shoulder Dislocation

Sports injury and shoulder dislocation are closely associated. Shoulder dislocation mainly happens because of a sudden lifting of heavy weights or twisting the shoulder in a wrong direction or due to a fall. Being one of the most mobile joints of the body, the shoulder often gets dislocated. The upper arm bone that is humerus, pops out of the shoulder ball socket.

Surgical or non-surgical process

Primary dislocation can almost always be reduced by manipulating the joint back into its position under anaesthesia. Surgery usually needed if the dislocation is impacted or if there is a fracture along with dislocation.

A shoulder dislocation can become recurrent due to a tear in the glenoid labrum (a ligament which stabilises the shoulder joint), if the dislocation happens again, then it is always better to repair the labrum.


Which is the most recommended surgical technique conducted by doctors?

Previously open surgery was the only surgical technique conducted by surgeons. But surgery  has gone to some other end with the help of technology. Arthroscopy or key-hole surgery is a process in which smaller incisions are made near the shoulder area. An arthroscope (a small camera) is inserted in the targeted area which provides images on a video screen. The surgeon can view the condition inside the damaged part on the monitor and repair the damaged tissues and ligaments simultaneously. A suture anchor either  metal or biodegradable is  inserted and ligaments are sutured back  to the native bone. Everything is done through key holes using pencil tip sized camera and miniature instruments.


Why arthroscopy is best to treat recurrent shoulder dislocation?

  • Small incisions (Key hole) are made thereby no blood loss.
  • Risk-free surgery
  • Patients recover faster as small incisions are made.
  • Short stay in the hospital
  • So patient will be back to work at the earliest.

All you need to know about Frozen Shoulder

Just like any other orthopaedic problems, shoulder joint has also shown a great increase in the recent years. The condition comes with extreme pain in the shoulder. One needs to be aware of the condition to get proper frozen shoulder treatment. Here is a brief description about Frozen Shoulder.

What is a frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis, is a condition where the person suffers from extreme pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint. Frozen shoulder develops when the shoulder capsule, which is the connective tissue around the shoulder joint, becomes thicker and more rigid, thus restricting the movement of the shoulder. The frozen shoulder comprises 10-15 per cent of all shoulder-related issues. Frozen shoulder is less likely to be seen in men. It is comparatively seen more in women. Studies show that almost 70 per cent of the frozen shoulder cases are observed in women.

What are the main causes of frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder can be caused by a variety of reasons. The main ones being,

  • Frozen shoulder can occur due to a result of surgeries and traumas where the shoulder will be set in such a way that it remains immobilized for a long time.
  • Infections, inflammatory or degenerative states also play a great role in leading to the condition called frozen shoulder.
  • Age is also a factor leading to the condition. The age group, especially between 40 and 60 has higher risks of suffering from a frozen shoulder.
  • Women who are already suffering from conditions like thyroid or diabetes are more prone to a frozen shoulder.
  • As mentioned before, any factors leading to a long period of shoulder immobility will increase the risk factors of being succumbed to a frozen shoulder.
  • Diabetes is also considered as a reason for frozen shoulder.
  • Hormonal Imbalance, lethargic lifestyle, and weak postural muscles increase the risks of frozen shoulder in women.

What are the symptoms of frozen shoulder?

  • Swelling in the shoulder caused by lack of movement.
  • Stiffness and pain in the shoulder

The best treatment for your Shoulder impingement

The most common condition called Shoulder impingement syndrome is mainly seen in adults at their old age. The condition is closely associated with rotator cuff tendinitis & shoulder bursitis. These conditions either may occur alone or jointly.

A group of muscles and tendons that attach the upper arm bone to the shoulder is called a rotator cuff. It helps in lifting and rotating the arm. The rotator cuff is located under the top of the shoulder called Acromion.

If a person suffers from shoulder impingement, the rotator cuff catches/rubs against the acromion. While lifting the arm, the space between the rotator cuff and acromion narrows that simultaneously increases pressure. This elevated pressure inflames the rotator cuff, leads to impingement.

Symptoms of impingement syndrome:

  • Experiencing a sudden sharp pain in the shoulder when lifting the arm overhead or backward.
  • Dull and constant pain in the arm
  • Pain radiates from front of the shoulder to the side of the arm
  • Pain gets worse at night times
  • Arm or shoulder weakness
  • Shoulder impingement is diagnosed with the physical examination. 
  • Ultrasound will support to show the rotator cuff injury.
  • MRI scan may be recommended to see the exact problem 

Impingement syndrome treatment

The prime goal of the treatment is to reduce pain and bring back the shoulder function. However, the treatment is planned based on the patient’s age, general health etc. Generally, the patient is advised for non-surgical treatment for shoulder impingement syndrome.

Rest: The doctor will advise the patient to take a complete rest by avoiding heavy activities like lifting the weight, giving strenuous work to hand etc.

NSAIDs: The patient will be advised on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to alleviate pain, stiffness.

Physiotherapy: The physiotherapist as per the doctor’s advice will teach mild exercises for shoulders to restore its activity and strengthen muscles.

Steroid injection: Cortisone injection is administered to the patient into the bursa beneath the acromion to relieve pain.

Stem Cell Treatment: Stem cells, extracted from high density-area is harvested and injected into the infected area, and they automatically transform into the damaged cells and heals naturally.

When all the primary treatments fail to alleviate pain, finally, the patient is recommended for an Arthroscopic shoulder surgery.

The prime goal of an arthroscopic shoulder surgery is to create an adequate space for the rotator cuff. By removing the inflamed portion of the bursa, space is acquired. Sometimes, a part of acromion also removed which is called as Anterior acromioplasty.

A fluid is injected into the patient’s shoulder to inflate the joint to view the inside clearly. Few incisions are made around the shoulder and with the help of a small camera called “Arthroscope” and other surgical instruments the procedure is performed. With the support of arthroscope, the surgeon will handle the instruments to remove the defected areas.

Dr. Banarji B.H is an ace surgeon in Arthroscopic shoulder surgery in Bangalore who is specialized in sports medicine and arthroscopy.

What are Rotator cuff tears and its cause?

Symptoms of Rotator cuff tear

Diagnosis of shoulder injury could be done by a thorough physical examination by a physician. In certain cases the doctor may suggest MRI scan, Ultrasound and X-rays.
