Shoulder arthroscopy is where we use a small, thin camera that allows us to see inside the body through very small incisions. With recent advancements, we can do even more complex surgeries with this technology. In the beginning, we could remove small little bone spurs with shoulder arthroscopy, and now we can do repairs of very large rotator cuff tears or labral tears, all with the help of the arthroscope.
