Shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure in which an arthroscope is inserted into the shoulder joint.

Shoulder instability is a chronic condition that causes frequent dislocations of the shoulder joint.

A partial dislocation is referred to as a subluxation whereas a complete separation is referred to as a dislocation.

Reverse Shoulder Joint Replacement
Reverse Shoulder replacement is an alternative surgery for patients who have torn their rotator cuffs and have developed severe arthritis or who have had a previous total shoulder replacement that has failed to relieve their pain. Rotator cuff is the group of four tendons that join the head of the humerus (arm bone) to the deeper muscles and provides stability and mobility to the shoulder joint.
