Surgery: Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery done with very small incisions, through which instruments and cameras can be placed to perform procedures on the shoulder including rotator cuff repair, bone debridement/shaving, and clean up of the subacromial space. Depending on the procedure performed, you may require immobilization and/or therapy after surgery.
