Orthopedic and Spinal Surgery Unit

At Dr Rami Hamed center (DRHC), we provide full sport injury managment including shoulder arthroscopy dealing with all possible injuries and using the latest international approved techniques.  

Shoulder Arthroscopy: 

The shoulder joint is the flexible and wide joint which make it ideal to deal with all soft tissue conditions like rotator cuff tears, Labrum tears as well as decompression of the sub acromial space to treat shoulder impingement syndrome using a small camera system and minor tools which can be inserted into the joint easily without any damage.

The surgeon will carry out minor cuts in the skin to insert the camera system and the tools to be able to do the operation without any significant trauma to the shoulder joint. The operation is very effective in terms of functional results and controlled post-operative pain and movement.

Virtually all arthroscopic shoulder operation is performed on an outpatient basis.  You need to reach the hospital an hour or two prior to your operation. Do not eat or drink for 6-8 hours before your operation.  After arrival. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed under general anesthesia occasionally with regional anesthesia to help the pain after the operation. 

The procedure generally lasts 1 to 2 hours. Typically, patients will be ready to go home in 1 or 2 hours after the operation.

The major advantage of shoulder arthroscopy is the faster recovery compared with conventional open shoulder operation.   Ice packs, sitting and sleeping in an elevated position can be comfortable for short time periods after surgery. Patients have simple dressing which is ispected and can be removed within few days later but wounds is better Kept dry and clean for 10 days.
