Most shoulder surgeries are performed either as arthroscopy or as open surgical procedures. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique using specially designed devices to access the joint through small incisions in the skin. The surgeon performs the repairs while watching a video feed from inside the body to see inside the joint and to check his progress. Open surgery is the traditional method where the body is opened up to allow the surgeon access to the joint. Your physician will provide you with advice and details about the options available if shoulder surgery is necessary to treat your condition.
