Total shoulder arthroplasty is the main treatment option in cases of severe osteoarthritis.

A damaged joint is usually the final result of arthritis, which is commonly idiopathic (i.e. of unknown cause) or might be due to other causes, such as injury (e.g. fracture), shoulder rotator cuff tear (e.g. rotator cuff arthropathy), chronic disease (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis) etc.

Arthroscopic acromioclavicular joint arthritis repair involves the resection of the distal clavicle.

The procedure is performed with the use of a camera through 2-3 very small incisions, 5-7 mm each. A small part of the clavicle is resected and the inflammatory elements of the joint are removed.

Arthroscopic repair of calcific supraspinatus tendinopathy is the treatment of choice when conservative treatment fails.

The procedure is performed with the use of a camera through 2-3 very small incisions, 5-7 mm each. A small part of the clavicle is resected and the inflammatory elements of the joint are removed.

The arthroscopic Bankart lesion repair is the treatment of choice in cases of recurrent dislocation (i.e. instability), especially in younger ages.

Lately, the improvement of arthroscopic techniques and tools permits the anatomic repair of lesions caused by the dislocation and helps patients return to their full level of activity before the dislocation in a very short period of time.

Arthroscopic shoulder inflammation repair is the main interventional method for the treatment of septic (e.g. bacterial) and aseptic (e.g. synovitis) inflammatory conditions of the joint.

Particularly in cases of septic inflammations, early diagnosis and treatment are vital to preserve joint function.
