Shoulder Arthroscopy Surgery

Regain Your Range of Motion

You may not realize how much you use your shoulder until you have an injury that limits your mobility. Because your shoulder is a complex joint that involves a network of ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles, there are a number of conditions that can cause you pain or discomfort, such as:

  • Bone spurs
  • Tissue that has become loose
  • Arthritis
  • Torn or injured tendon, ligament or rotator cuff
  • A “frozen shoulder”

When traditional, noninvasive treatments are not relieving your symptoms, you should consider having shoulder arthroscopy surgery. Our team at miVIP Las Vegas can pinpoint the damage and repair it through using this minimally invasive technique and get you on the path to recovery quickly.

How Does Shoulder Arthroscopy Work?

Patients who choose to undergo shoulder arthroscopy surgery will be placed under general anesthesia. Using very small incisions, the surgeon will place a tiny camera into the joint to get a better look at the damage. Depending on the injury, the physician may employ a number of techniques, though most will utilize very small incisions. Only on exceptional occasions does one of our doctors need to perform open surgery.

Because of the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, patients can expect:

  • Less risk of infection
  • Less risk of bleeding
  • A quicker recovery time

Our Team at miVIP

We employ the best of the best when it comes to our world-class surgeons. Each of our physicians is board certified and highly qualified to do the job. In fact, many give lectures and teach other doctors the techniques that are used at miVIP.

Your Recovery after Shoulder Arthroscopy

Our shoulder arthroscopy surgery is typically an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home on the same day of your operation. Recovering in your own house is advantageous, as you may be more comfortable in your own environment. Depending on the extent of the damage, you can expect to have limited use of your affected arm until your physician clears you to do more activities.

Your surgeon will likely suggest some physical therapy exercises you can do to help your recovery. Immediately afterward, you may experience some minor pain and swelling, for which your doctor may either recommend ice or prescribe pain medication.

Cost of Surgery

The actual cost of your surgery will depend on your insurance policy. At miVIP, we accept most forms of either PPO of POS insurance. To better determine what your costs may be or to discuss payment options, please contact one of our friendly customer service representatives.

Other Important Information

As with any kind of surgery, patients who undergo shoulder arthroscopy surgery should closely monitor their recovery. Because this procedure is minimally invasive, the odds of an adverse side effect are minimal. However, it is important to keep an eye out for symptoms such as excessive drainage or bleeding. Spiking a fever is another warning sign, and you should alert your physician immediately if you notice any of these symptoms.
