Removal of loose bodies of shoulder – Arthroscopic Approach

Strong and sturdy bones are an absolute necessity for health. Bones protect our brain, heart, and other organs from injury and they also store strengthening minerals such as calcium and phosphorous, and release them into the body when we need them for other uses.Bone density or bone mineral density (BMD) is the amount of bone mineral in the bones. The best way to measure bone health is by doing a bone mineral density test. The higher the bone mineral content, the denser the bones are. And the denser the bones, the stronger they generally are and the less likely they ...

Arthroscopic Fracture Fixation

Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure during which the internal structure of a joint is examined for diagnosis and treatment of problems inside the joint. The advancement in Arthroscopic techniques and equipments has led to using this surgical method for correcting fractures. About 10% to 20% of scapula fractures need surgery andArthroscopic fracture fixation is using this procedure to treat a fracture of shoulder bones in a minimal invasive process with the aid of metal instrumentation.Glenoid fractures (intrarticular), greater tuberosity fractures, lateral end clavicle fractures are the ones that can be managed arthroscopically . The major advantages of arthroscopic fracture fixation ...

Common types of Shoulder Surgery

Most often, it is due to the tendencies of people to wait and watch on the shoulder problem that finally leads them to the option of surgery. They either wait with the hope that the injury/problem would heal on its own, or due to lack of time or for some other reason.

It is only when these non-surgical options do not help in relieving the symptoms, surgery is opted as an option for certain cases. We will now try to understand the common types of shoulder surgeries ...
