Your rotator cuff is formed of four muscles and tendons that merge to form your rotator cuff tendon. This tendon is attached to the head of your humerus (upper arm bone) and passes through your subacromial space (a space under the bony part of your shoulder blade, called the acromion) when you raise your arm. But heavy lifting, overuse of this tendon from repetitive activities, or an injury can cause a tear in your rotator cuff tendon. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon will often recommend rotator cuff repair surgery to reattach the torn area of your tendon to the head of your humerus (upper arm bone).
Shoulder replacement surgery can be used to treat severe damage to your joints, most commonly caused by arthritis. The type of replacement surgery that you will require will depend on your diagnosis and the condition of your shoulder. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon could perform partial shoulder replacement surgery, where the head of your humerus (upper arm bone) that forms the ball of your shoulder joint is removed and replaced with an artificial component, also known as a prosthesis. In some cases, your Surgeon will also replace the socket of your shoulder joint with a prosthesis. This is known as a total shoulder replacement.
If your shoulder becomes dislocated, this means your humerus or upper arm bone is either partially or completely removed from its socket in your scapula (shoulder blade). Your Orthopaedic Surgeon can return your humerus to its correct position through a non-surgical technique called reduction. This involves carefully moving your arm around your shoulder joint until it fits into your socket.
A shoulder arthroscopy is a keyhole operation to examine the inside of your joint. A camera will be inserted through very small incisions in your shoulder to help diagnose the problems you are having. If possible, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will also perform treatment during the procedure.
A shoulder arthroscopy can be used to perform a range of treatments, and these will vary depending on the results of your arthroscopy. They could include arthroscopic subacromial decompression surgery, where the underneath of your acromion (the bony part of your scapula or shoulder blade) is shaved to provide your rotator cuff tendon with more space to move; or arthroscopic capsular release, where the capsule (lining) of your shoulder joint is released to allow you to move your shoulder with ease.
