What is Arthroscopy Of The Shoulder?
Diagnostic arthroscopy is a well recognized procedure providing orthopaedic surgeons with an exact
diagnosis which is not possible with examination and X-ray alone. Patients with non-specific signs,
such as partial rotator cuff repairs, are difficult to diagnose and many shoulder conditions can be
treated with the development of arthroscopic surgical repair. These methods of treatment continue to
develop, offering clear advantages compared to open procedures, such as being less intrusive and
offering early recovery for the patient.
