Can u please describe in detail what they do when u have arthroscopic labral debridment acromioplasty synovectomy and bursectomy surgery of left shoulder??

Yes

Endoscopy
The labrum is a cartilage ring that can have some tearing . Debridement just means that this is trimmed to a stable edge. Acromioplasty means that the undersurface of the acromion is removed partially(just millimeters). Synovectomy means that some inflamed tissue is removed during surgery. The bursectomy portion is the removal of the inflamed burial tissue above the rotator cuff.

What is rotator cuff repair and acromnioplasty?

Surgery

Rotator_cuff
Rotator cuff repair is simply the surgical repair of a torn rotator cuff tendon and acromioplasty refers to surgical removal of a portion of the acromion (an inferior prominence of the anterior acromion) to create more room for the rotator cuff.

What is the difference between a rotator cuff repair and acromnioplasty?

Shoulder

Rotator_cuff_repair
A rotator cuff repair is a fixation of a torn tendon. An acromioplasty is the shaving of a bone spur which maybe impinging on the rotator cuff. This also provides more room for the rotator cuff to function

Conservative Rx

Assuming one has arthritis in the shoulder, the options are: Surgical (replacement) or non-surgical. The non-surgical treatments include antiinflammatory medications, steroid injections, pain medications, therapy and other alternative treatments such as chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, etc. Steroids and therapy tend to be the primary traditional non-operative treatments.

Dr. Shawn Hennigan answered:

How complicated is shoulder replacement?

Shoulder replacement

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Total shoulder replacement is a technically demanding procedure. Results have been shown to be vastly better when performed by a surgeon who performs the procedure on a regular basis. In surveys done by AAOS, the avg number of shoulder replacements done per year is 3. Best to see a shoulder surgeon who performs this upwards of 3 per month or more.

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

What should I expect for a partial shoulder replacement?

Rehabilitation/Rest

Weight_training
In order to perform a partial shoulder replacement, one of the rotator cuff tendons are cut, then reattached. Because of this, the tendon needs time to heal. A period of rest if necessary to protect this healing before starting rehabilitation. A partial replacement lasts considerably longer overall, but has the drawback of residual pain from not replacing the socket side of the joint.
