FAQs: Shoulder - Outcomes

What is the incidence of nerve damage in shoulder surgery?

nerve damage following most common shoulder procedures is extremely rare. permanaent nerve injury after a nerve block (interscalene block) is less than 0.1%. see: interscalene block

large complex open procedures, such as revision shoulder replacements or complex fracture or tumour surgery are more likely to have a risk of significant nerve damage, but again this is not common.
