GPS-guided Shoulder Replacement

GPS-guided Shoulder Replacement Pic

For a successful total shoulder replacement, accurate positioning of the implants is crucial to accomplish a good clinical outcome. Guided Personalized Surgery or GPS-guided shoulder replacement is an advanced technology developed to provide more accurate positioning of an implant. Shoulder replacement through GPS guidance provides information and guidance to the surgeon for the precise positioning of implants.

Shoulder Joint Replacement

Total shoulder replacement surgery is performed to relieve symptoms of severe shoulder pain and disability due to arthritis. In this surgery, the damaged articulating parts of the shoulder joint are removed and replaced with artificial prostheses. Replacement of both the humeral head and the socket is called a total shoulder replacement.The shoulder is a highly movable body joint that allows various movements of the arm. It is a ball and socket joint.

Ream and Run Shoulder Arthroplasty

Ream and run shoulder arthroplasty, also known as shoulder hemiarthroplasty with non-prosthetic glenoid arthroplasty, is a novel type of shoulder arthroplasty (replacement) procedure employed for the treatment of severe arthritis of the shoulder. Shoulder arthritis is a condition in which the cartilage on the glenoid and humeral head deteriorates resulting in significant pain and stiffness of the shoulder joint.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement

Conventional surgical methods such as total shoulder joint replacement are not very effective in the treatment of rotator cuff arthropathy. Reverse total shoulder replacement is an advanced surgical technique specifically designed for rotator cuff tear arthropathy, a condition where you suffer from both shoulder arthritis and a rotator cuff tear.

Rotator Cuff Repair

The rotator cuff is a group of 4 muscles in the shoulder joint including the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis. These muscles originate in the scapula and attach to the head of the humerus through tendons. The rotator cuff forms a sleeve around the humeral head and glenoid cavity, providing stability to the shoulder joint while enabling a wide range of movements.

Shoulder Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an arthroscope. The arthroscope consists of a light system and camera that projects images of the surgical site onto a computer screen for your doctor to clearly view. Arthroscopy is used to treat disease conditions and injuries involving the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the shoulder joint.

Shoulder Reconstruction Surgery

Shoulder reconstruction surgery is an operative procedure in which stretched or torn soft-tissue structures that surround the shoulder joint such as the capsule, ligaments, and cartilage, are repaired to secure the shoulder joint in place. The procedure is mainly employed for the treatment of individuals with shoulder instability, to prevent recurrent joint dislocations, and to restore normal shoulder range of motion and function.

Shoulder Resurfacing

The shoulder is an active joint is prone to injuries and may also get affected by conditions such as arthritis, which results in impaired functioning and related discomfort. The traditional method of treatment for such conditions is shoulder joint replacement. However, advances in technology have resulted in a superior alternative technique known as shoulder resurfacing.

Shoulder Surgery

Shoulder surgery is a surgical procedure for the treatment of a shoulder injury or shoulder condition. The procedure involves repairing a diseased, damaged, or degenerated shoulder joint in order to eliminate pain and restore normal shoulder function.The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the body that enables a wide range of movements including forward flexion, abduction, adduction, external rotation, internal rotation, and 360-degree circumduction.

SLAP Repair

A SLAP repair is an arthroscopic shoulder procedure to treat a specific type of injury to the labrum called a SLAP tear.Your shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint made up of the upper arm bone, the shoulder blade, and the collarbone. The head of the upper arm bone fits into the socket of the shoulder joint known as the glenoid cavity.

Sternoclavicular Joint Reconstruction

Sternoclavicular Joint Reconstruction Pic

Sternoclavicular joint reconstruction is a surgical procedure employed to repair and restore full function of a damaged sternoclavicular joint.The sternoclavicular (SC) joint is the joint between the breastbone (sternum) and the collar bone (clavicle). Injuries to this joint are called sternoclavicular joint injuries and can include stretching or tearing of the ligaments.
