New Shoulder Surgery


New Shoulder Surgery


Description:

Rotator cuff tears - the tearing or breaking loose of a tendon in the shoulder - are common injuries in adults 40 and older. Standard surgery to repair these injuries usually involves a large incision, intense pain and a hospital stay. Now a new, less invasive procedure -- arthroscopic surgery -- is helping people recover more quickly. Background Rotator cuff tears - the tearing or breaking loose of a tendon in the shoulder - are common injuries in adults 40 and older. Standard surgery to repair these injuries usually involves a large incision, intense pain and a hospital stay. Now a new, less invasive procedure -- arthroscopic surgery -- is helping people recover more quickly. In the arthroscopic procedure, surgeons make only small incisions and use a camera to look inside the shoulder to repair the tear. The outcome - less pain, stiffness and scarring. This VNR features an injured weight lifter who is back in the gym and winning competitions following arthroscopic surgery.
