Shoulder Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy has been one of the major advancements in Orthopaedic Surgery and advanced the knowledge and skills of shoulder surgery over the past decade.

Now the vast majority of elective shoulder surgery can be performed arthroscopically, with significant advantages to the patient and surgeon.

However the skills and equipment are completely different to traditional open surgery.

In this section I have tried to include  information that has been difficult to find in the standard literature and some tools and aides to assist with the understanding, training and skills development for arthroscopic surgery.
