Shoulder with Debridement (limited)

Debridement is a type of shoulder surgery that removes damaged tissue and debris located in the shoulder joint. Through the use of a tiny fiber optic camera, the surgeon can repair any damaged tissue to treat shoulder pain or injury. I Need A Surgery can schedule your shoulder surgery at an ambulatory surgery center to save you time and money.

How do I know if I need a shoulder debridement?

The tissue in your shoulder can be damaged by any number of factors. Even though it might be the result of trauma or injury, it isn’t uncommon for the tissue to be damaged because of osteoarthritis. As you age, the normal tissues in your joints deteriorates. Injuries causing debris in your joints can occur as your body grows older. Even though the symptoms might vary, limited range of movement and pain in the shoulder are common indicators you need this shoulder surgery.

How is the shoulder debridement procedure performed?

After an anesthetic is given, several incisions are made in your shoulder. An arthroscope is inserted through one of your incisions. A tool is put into one of your incisions to fill your joint up with fluid. Since it expands the joint, it provides the surgeon with the space needed to inspect the damaged. Special tools are used to repair any damage. Cartilage that is loose or damaged is taken out. After the cartilage is taken care of, the fluid is drained and the incisions are sutured.
