Arthroscopic & Open Surgery

The shoulder is a fascinating joint which is regarded as one of the most mobile joints in the human body. Due to its complex nature and functioning, the shoulder is often neglected and problems go undiagnosed or mismanaged. Sign and symptoms may be confusing and therefore put both patient and doctor in the dark as to the true cause of the problem.

All examinations begin with a thorough history and systematically examination of the patient, all of which are crucial components in making the correct diagnosis. Special investigations such as MRI and Ultrasound scans play a crucial role in confirming a diagnosis.
Shoulder surgery may be performed both through open and arthroscopic techniques. The appropriate technique depends on the final diagnosis.
