Arthroscopy (Definition)

Arthroscopy is minimally invasive joint surgery, commonly used for the knee & shoulder, but also for the ankle, hip, wrist, elbow and other joints. A camera with a fiber optic cable is attached to a video screen placed thru a 1 cm incision and other instruments are introduced thru other small incisions to do the work required.

See Below: Acromioplasty (commonly referred to as spur removal or shaving) is one of the most commonly performed shoulder procedures and is also considered to be one of the most overperformed procedures. I would recommend you consider a second opinion with a shoulder specialist to firmly establish the reasons behind your shoulder pain. http://www. Theshouldercenter. Com/labrum-tear-slap-lesion.

Shoulder pain: With an isolated acromioplasty, usually you would not be in a lot of pain by 13 weeks. Many times the pain comes from inadequate rehab right after the surgery. There can also be issues with frozen shoulder. It is vital to get the shoulder moving as much as possible as soon as you can. Usually working with a physical therapist that specializes in shoulders will expedite the recovery. ...Read more

I had Acromioplasty and 7mm of clavicle was shaved, but still have impingement/pain. How much more clavicle be shaven off to relieve pain. Is7mm limit?

I had Acromioplasty and 7mm of clavicle was shaved, but still have impingement/pain. How much more clavicle be shaven off to relieve pain. Is7mm limit?

3mm more: The goal of a distal clavicle excision (shaving collar bone) is to remove approximately 1cm of bone. If too little bone is removed, pain may persist. If excess bone is removed, the collar bone joint (AC joint) can become unstable. In your situation, if you had 7mm of bone removed from your distal clavicle, approximately 3mm more can be removed without causing complications. ...Read more

Resection: If the symptoms are related to the Ac joint, then a resection of the distal clavicle is the typical recommendation. It really comes down to the specific reason you are still having pain. ...Read more

As far as complications and recovery, which is better MUA with arthroscopic release or just an arthroscopic release?

As far as complications and recovery, which is better MUA with arthroscopic release or just an arthroscopic release?

Both: Have inherent risks. Mua has risk of humerus fracture while release has risk of infection, pain, and injury to axillary nerve. I usually do a small mua if I have to do a release to make it easier to get into the joint but the drawback is that mua causes bleeding which hinders the view they the scope ...Read more

How long could knee arthroscopy recovery take?

How long could knee arthroscopy recovery take?

It Depends: On how active you are and how much was done during surgery. For a routine knee scope I typically allow my patients back to work in 3-4 days if they have a sedentary job. Otherwise, most people can start getting back to work at 2-3 weeks depending on their job. Strengthening of the quadriceps muscle is key as this shuts down with knee surgery of any kind. Most people are near full by 4 weeks. ...Read more

How long does a knee arthroscopy recovery take?

How long does a knee arthroscopy recovery take?

1-6 weeks: For meniscus surgeries in an otherwise healthy patient in excellent condition, the arthroscopy does not need too much time to recover from. I have had patients walk out from surgery and never turn back. However, patients are often deconditioned because of the injury. This causes muscle (especially quads) weakness and inhibition that takes longer to recover from. ...Read more

What is the expected recovery time after a knee arthroscopy?

Pain from quad weakness and tendinitis will not improve at all after surgery. It will depend more on rehab. ...Read more
