Shoulder Arthroscopy

A shoulder arthroscopy is a procedure that orthopaedic surgeons use to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside your shoulder joint. They use a small camera or an arthroscope, and surgical instruments to examine and repair the tissues in and around the shoulder.

Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator Cuff Repair surgery is very common and is done for patients who have significant pain. It’s definitely recommended if the pain is interfering with your sleep. Once the tendon is detached from the bone, it starts retracting due to the pull of the rotator cuff muscles. In this situation, a gap develops, and the tear cannot heal.

Arthroscopic Stabilisation

Arthroscopic Shoulder Stabilisation is a minimally invasive operation. It allows Dr Colvin to correct instability of the shoulder joint. Arthroscopic Shoulder Stabilisation is sometimes referred to as arthroscopic labral repair and it is performed to stop the ball of the shoulder joint from coming out of its socket.

Latarjet Procedure

The Latarjet procedure is a brilliant improvement on an operation that has been around for half a century. It is an operation to stabilise your shoulder and prevent shoulder dislocation. It involves taking a bone graft from the front of the shoulder blade and attaching it to the front of your shoulder joint socket.

AC Joint Reconstruction

Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Reconstruction surgery is required to stabilise severe and unsightly AC joint dislocations. When the AC joint is completely dislocated, it causes a highly visible bump at the end of the collarbone (clavicle).
