Are you suffering from shoulder pain??? We can help you to get out of it....

Our shoulder is made up of upper arm bone (humerus), shoulder blade (scapula) and collarbone(clavicle).  Arthroscopy is a treatment procedure used to inspect, diagnose and repair problems inside a joint.  
Shoulder Arthroscopy that performed with RathiMed Specialty Hospital is the best shoulder arthroscopy treatment in Chennai. The hospital is very particular in providing quality care to the patients.  

When Shoulder Arthroscopy needed?

Arthroscopy will be suggested if the painful condition of the shoulder does not respond to non-surgical treatments.  The reason behind most of the shoulder problems is injury, overuse and age-related problems.  Shoulder arthroscopy may relieve painful conditions that damage the rotator cuff tendons, labrum, articular cartilage and other soft tissues surrounding the joint.  
Common Arthroscopic Procedures
  • Bone spur removal
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Repair of ligaments
  • Removal or repair of labrum
  • Removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage

Diagnosis of Shoulder Problems

Performing physical examination and viewing medical images and asking to perform certain simple movements to assess muscle strength, joint motion and stability are the most common methods to evaluate the shoulders.  

How is Arthroscopy Performed?

After giving general anesthesia, the surgeon inserts the arthroscope into the shoulder through a small incision.  The arthroscope is connected to a     video monitor in the operating room.  Inspects for all tissues of the shoulder joint and area above the joint and repair the damaged tissues.  

Recovery after Arthroscopy

Several weeks are needed to heal from surgery and restricted arm movements for some time.  An arm sling will be provided at that time.  The physical therapist will help to move the arm at first and suitable exercises will be suggested.  After about six months the functional movement and strength will be regained.  


Avoiding repetitive overhead movements may help to prevent certain conditions from worsening.  It is better to follow the doctor’s suggestion for weightlifting or motion restriction.
RathiMed Specialty Hospital is known for its orthopedic services.  Dr. Ragunathan is the founder and the chief surgeon of the hospital.  He is famous for his expertise as a surgeon.  The hospital is aided by latest infrastructure and facilities.
