Proximal Biceps Tenodesis

picture of Proximal Biceps Tenodesis

Proximal biceps tenodesis is the surgical reattachment of a torn proximal biceps tendon, which connects the upper part of your biceps muscle to the shoulder.

Open Shoulder Stabilization

Open shoulder stabilization is a surgical procedure performed to treat a condition called shoulder instability.

Distal Biceps Tendon Repair

picture of Distal Biceps Tendon Repair

The biceps is a large muscle located in the front of your upper arm and runs from the shoulder to the elbow joint. It is attached to the bones of the shoulder and elbow by tendons. The distal biceps is the area where the biceps is attached to the forearm bone in the elbow.

Shoulder Reconstruction Surgery

picture of Shoulder Reconstruction Surgery

Shoulder reconstruction surgery is an operative procedure in which stretched or torn soft-tissue structures that surround the shoulder joint such as the capsule, ligaments, and cartilage, are repaired to secure the shoulder joint in place.

Humeral Shaft Fracture Repair

picture of Humeral Shaft Fracture Repair

The humerus is the bone that forms the upper arm. It articulates with the glenoid cavity of the scapula (shoulder blade) to form the shoulder joint and with the lower arm bones – the ulna and radius – to form the elbow joint. The middle of the humerus is called the humeral shaft and a fracture of this section of the bone is called a humeral shaft fracture.

Arthroscopic Latarjet for Shoulder Instability

picture of Arthroscopic Latarjet for Shoulder Instability

Arthroscopic latarjet for shoulder instability is a novel minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat chronic shoulder instability or anterior shoulder dislocation, usually caused by bone loss or a fracture of the glenoid.

Anterior Shoulder Stabilization

picture of Anterior Shoulder Stabilization

Anterior shoulder instability, also known as anterior glenohumeral instability, is a shoulder condition in which damage to the soft tissues or bone causes the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) to dislocate or sublux from the glenoid fossa, compromising the function of the shoulder.

Ultrasound-Guided Shoulder Injections

An ultrasound is a common imaging technique that employs high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs and other internal structures of the body. These images provide valuable information about the underlying pathology of tissues and assists with diagnosis and planning the treatment of a condition.

Complex Shoulder Reconstruction

Shoulder reconstruction is a surgical procedure performed in patients to alleviate shoulder instability, restoring its function and serving to prevent recurrent shoulder dislocations.

Posterior Shoulder Stabilization

Posterior shoulder stabilisation is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of a condition called posterior shoulder instability.

Rotator Cuff Repair

picture of Rotator Cuff Repair

The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles in the shoulder joint including the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis. These muscles originate in the scapula and attach to the head of the humerus through tendons.

Arthroscopic Bankart Repair

picture of Arthroscopic Bankart Repair

The labrum can sometimes tear during a shoulder injury. A specific type of labral tear that occurs when the shoulder dislocates is called a Bankart tear. This is a tear to a part of the labrum called the inferior glenohumeral ligament and is common in the young who sustain a dislocation of the shoulder.

Shoulder Labrum Reconstruction

Traumatic injury to the shoulder or overuse of the shoulder by excessive throwing or weightlifting can cause a labral tear. In addition, the aging process may weaken the labrum, leading to injury secondary to wear and tear.

Latarjet Procedure

picture of Latarjet Procedure

The shoulder joint provides a wide range of movement to the upper extremity, but overuse or trauma can cause instability to the joint. The Latarjet procedure is a surgical procedure performed to treat shoulder instability by relocating a piece of bone with an attached tendon to the shoulder joint.

Shoulder Stabilization

When conservative treatment options such as medications, rest and ice application fail to relieve shoulder instability, your surgeon may recommend shoulder stabilization surgery.

Shoulder Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an arthroscope.

Shoulder Surgery

Shoulder surgery is a surgical procedure for the treatment of a shoulder injury or shoulder condition. The procedure involves repairing a diseased, damaged, or degenerated shoulder joint in order to eliminate pain and restore normal shoulder function.

Pectoralis Major Tears/Repairs

picture of Pectoralis Major Tears/Repairs

The pectoralis muscle is a large fan-shaped muscle comprised of the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles that stretch from the armpit to the collarbone and down across the lower chest region on both sides of the chest.

Stryker InSpace for Rotator Cuff Tears

picture of Stryker InSpace for Rotator Cuff Tears

Stryker’s InSpace is a minimally invasive, subacromial spacer for arthroscopic treatment of massive, irreparable rotator cuff tears (MIRCTs). It involves implantation of a balloon spacer made of a biodegradable polymer into the subacromial space of the shoulder arthroscopically.

Bony Instability Reconstruction of the Shoulder

picture of Bony Instability Reconstruction of the Shoulder

The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body. Injury and trauma can tear or stretch the labrum and/or ligaments, causing loosening and instability of the shoulder joint which can lead to partial or complete dislocation of the joint.

Revision Open Labral Repair (Revision Bankart)

picture of Revision Open Labral Repair

Revision open labral repair, also known as a revision Bankart surgery, is an open surgery performed to stabilize the shoulder joint after an unsuccessful primary labral repair surgery that may have been done either arthroscopically or as open surgery.

ORIF of Clavicle Fractures

A clavicle fracture refers to a broken collarbone and is a common injury associated with contact sports such as football and martial arts, as well as impact sports such as motor racing.

Arthroscopic Superior Capsular Reconstruction (SCR)

picture of Arthroscopic Superior Capsular Reconstruction

Superior Capsular Reconstruction is a surgical procedure to repair massive, irreparable rotator cuff tears. The surgery involves reconstruction of the superior capsule of the shoulder joint using an autograft (tissue from the same person) or an allograft (tissue from a donor).

Rotator Cuff Surgery Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

picture of Rotator Cuff Surgery Frequently Asked Questions

Rotator cuff surgery is a surgical procedure to repair an injured or torn rotator cuff. The surgery may be performed as an open procedure or arthroscopically, depending on the severity of the tear.

Revision Rotator Cuff Surgery

picture of Revision Rotator Cuff Surgery

Revision rotator cuff surgery is a procedure done to repair a re-tear in the rotator cuff after a failed initial rotator cuff surgery. The revision surgery is generally more complex, as it attempts to repair a rotator cuff that has been torn multiple times.

Shoulder Fracture Care

picture of Shoulder Fracture Care

A break in the bone that makes up the shoulder joint is called a shoulder fracture. The clavicle (collarbone) and end of the humerus (upper arm bone) closest to the shoulder are the bones that usually are fractured.

Triceps Repair

picture of Triceps Repair

Triceps repair is a surgical procedure that involves the repair of a ruptured (torn) triceps tendon. A tendon is a tough band of fibrous tissue which connects muscle to bone and works together with muscles in moving your arms, fingers, legs, and toes.
