Shoulder Arthroscopy

“Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that helps surgeons to inspect, diagnose and treat any problem within the shoulder joint.
It is a minimally invasive approach in which the surgeon makes small incisions. As a result, blood loss during surgery is significantly reduced, post operative pain is minimized and recovery is faster.”
