Shoulder surgery

Shoulder surgery is a medical procedure performed to treat shoulder-related problems and injuries. It is a specialized branch of orthopedic surgery that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of shoulder problems. Groruddalsklinikken is a recognized clinic in Norway that offers high-quality health services, including shoulder surgery.

The shoulder is a complex joint consisting of several bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. This complexity means that the shoulder is exposed to various types of injuries and conditions that can affect its function and mobility. Some common shoulder problems include shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder instability, and osteoarthritis.

Shoulder surgery may be necessary when conservative treatment methods do not provide sufficient relief or improvement of symptoms. The procedure can be performed using different techniques, depending on the specific condition or injury to be treated. Some common types of shoulder surgery include:

1. Arthroscopic surgery: This is a minimally invasive technique where a small camera-guided instrument, called an arthroscope, is inserted into the shoulder joint through small incisions in the skin. This allows the surgeon to examine and treat the shoulder problem without the need for large open incisions. Arthroscopic surgery can be used to treat conditions such as shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injuries and shoulder instability.

2. Open surgery: In some cases, open surgery may be necessary to access and treat more complex shoulder problems. This means that the surgeon makes a larger incision in the skin to gain direct access to the shoulder joint. Open surgery may be necessary to repair severe rotator cuff injuries, restore shoulder stability, or replace damaged joints with prosthetics.

3. Rehabilitation: After shoulder surgery, rehabilitation is an important part of the treatment process. This involves physiotherapy and exercises that help the patient restore strength, mobility and function in the shoulder. The rehabilitation program will be adapted to the specific operation and the patient’s individual needs.
