Repair of Ligaments

Ligaments hold the shoulder joint in place and any injury to the ligament can result in instability of the joint and discomfort to the patient.

Characteristics of Torn ligament:

  • Cause: Age related wear & tear OR degenerative changes OR injury OR overuse or underuse of the shoulder.

  • Symptoms: Swelling, pain, decreased range of motion and joint instability.

  • Treatment: Shoulder arthroscopy is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon to repair ligament and capsule through a tiny incision. This will re-establish shoulder stability in people who suffer from recurrent shoulder instability due to the torn ligaments.
