    Dr. Aditya Sai is a gemstone. My father-in-law had a tendon injury while climbing stairs in my hometown, Odisha, and the doctor there made us nervous like anything; he asked us to rush to Bhubaneswar or Visakhapatnam immediately and get the surgery done within 7 days. Thank God, I live in Mumbai and learned about Dr. Aditya Sai through a mutual friend, and I took an appointment. Next morning, my father-in-law flew from Odisha to Mumbai, and we met Dr. Aditya Sai. Believe me, he made us so comfortable, and first he made us understand the exact situation, the need for an MRI, and in what scenarios surgery is required, etc. After all the diagnoses, he prescribed special footwear for my father-in-law for 6 weeks. Today, as I write this post, without surgery, my father-in-law is absolutely perfect and is about to go to the physiotherapists for recovery. Thank you, Dr. Aditya Sai. 🙏

    I went to Dr. Aditya Sai after an acident. He showed remarkable depth of knowledge, skill, and awareness, during the process of advising for surgery and off course - also during the surgery. This helped me recover quite well. His communication and willingness to talk to other treating doctors was great and particularly helpful in mitigating risks associated with the surgery and also helped during the course of my recovery. Most of all, he comes across as a warm and sensitive doctor, which makes him among the better Doctors that I've ever met.

    Experiencing a complex lateral meniscus tear, the doctor advised surgery as the sole option. Seeking a second opinion from a family doctor, he concurred with the initial diagnosis. The entire surgical process was painless both pre and post-operation. Post-op, there was manageable pain related to knee swelling. I have no complaints about the entire experience.The doctor also recommended a physiotherapist who proved highly effective, guiding me through the entire recovery. I would confidently recommend this doctor to any patient dealing with knee sports injuries.

    What is Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery?

    Shoulder arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive type of surgery performed to diagnose and treat shoulder joint problems.

    The procedure involves making smaller incisions, each incision being the size of a keyhole, compared to the need of making larger incisions as in the case of a traditional open surgery.

    The surgeon will insert a small camera, known as an arthroscope, through a tiny incision made in the skin. The camera will help project the images of the shoulder joint to a video screen. The surgeon can view these images to find the source of the shoulder injury, diagnose the shoulder problem, and may even insert small surgical instruments through the other tiny incisions to perform any treatment that may be required.

    When Do You Need a Shoulder Arthroscopy?

    A shoulder arthroscopy is used for the diagnosis and treatment of various shoulder problems. The procedure may be recommended in the following cases:

    • Shoulder instability, which is a condition in which the shoulder joint becomes loose and either slide around too much or gets dislocated (slipping out of the ball and socket joint)
    • Damaged or torn ligaments
    • A damaged or torn labrum (cartilage ring)
    • Biceps tendon injuries
    • Rotator cuff tears
    • Bone spurs or inflammation around the rotator cuff region
    • Arthritis at the end of the collarbone (clavicle)
    • Presence of a loose tissue that requires removal
    • Damaged lining of the shoulder joint or inflammation which may be caused by conditions like rheumatoid arthritis
    • Shoulder impingement syndrome, to make more place for the shoulder to move around

    What Are the Conditions Found During Shoulder Arthroscopy?

    A shoulder surgeon can detect various shoulder conditions using shoulder arthroscopy. The different conditions that could be found during shoulder arthroscopy are  :

    • Shoulder instability: This condition develops when the head of the upper arm bone is forced out of the socket of the shoulder joint.
    • Labral tears: An injury to the ring of cartilage in the shoulder joint is known as a shoulder labral tear.
    • Cartilage injuries: Injuries to the cartilage in the shoulder region can make joint motion painful.
    • Acromioclavicular joint injuries: Also known as shoulder separation, this type of injury occurs due to damage to the ligaments between the shoulder head (acromion) and the collar bone (clavicle).
    • Frozen shoulder: This is a condition in which pain and stiffness develop in the shoulder joint.
    • Arthritis of the shoulder joint: This condition develops when there is damage to the cartilage in the shoulder joint, resulting in joint inflammation.
    • Rotator cuff tears: These are tears that develop when the tendons in the shoulder region pull away from the arm bone.
    • Rotator cuff tendinitis: This condition develops when there is an inflammation of a group of muscles in the shoulder region.
    • Shoulder impingement syndrome: This condition develops when the acromion (the outer edge of the shoulder blade rubs against the rotator cuff beneath it to cause pain and irritation.
    • Biceps tendon injuries: These types of injuries occur when the tendons that attach the biceps to the shoulder tear.
    • Shoulder bursitis: This condition involves fluid build-up in the bursa, which is the cushioning pad between the bones and tissues in a joint.
    • Synovitis: This condition involves the inflammation of the connective tissue lining the inside of the joint capsule.

    The shoulder surgeon may repair or treat many of the above mentioned conditions during the arthroscopy procedure itself.

    Types of Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery

    A shoulder arthroscopic surgery can be of different types, based on the type of shoulder condition or injury being treated. The different types of shoulder arthroscopic surgeries are:


    Arthroscopic Surgery to Treat Rotator Cuff Tear

    Rotator cuff repair surgery is the most common type of arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The damaged portion of the rotator cuff is first identified by the surgeon. The injured or torn tendons are then cleaned and reattached in the shoulder region.


    Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery for Treatment of Impingement Syndrome

    This procedure is also known as subacromial decompression.  The surgeon inserts an arthroscope and other small surgical instruments through the tiny incisions created in the shoulder region to remove the bursa and sometimes, the undersurface of the acromion in this procedure. This creates a space to allow the rotator cuff to glide without being pinched between the bones.


    SLAP Repair Surgery Using an Arthroscope

    SLAP or superior labrum anterior and posterior tear is a type of injury to the shoulder labrum. The labrum is brought back to its original position using arthroscopic surgery.


    Treating Shoulder Dislocation by Arthroscopic Surgery

    Bankart repair is a type of arthroscopic surgery done to attach the labrum to the capsule of the shoulder joint. This helps hold the ball in place. The surgeon may also tighten or reattach the ligaments using arthroscopic surgery.


    Release of Frozen Shoulder Using an Arthroscopic Surgery

    An arthroscopic surgery helps in loosening the contracted tissue by cutting the capsule around the ball of the shoulder joint. This helps provide relief from the pain and stiffness due to a frozen shoulder.


    Arthroscopic Surgery to Remove Bone Spurs or Loose Cartilage

    Arthritis may cause the roughening of the shoulder joint surface. The surgeon can smoothen the rough joint surfaces and remove any bony sours or loose fragments using arthroscopic surgery.

    Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery Procedure in Mumbai

    A shoulder arthroscopic surgery procedure in Mumbai will involve certain pre-operative steps before undergoing the surgery.

    Preparation for Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery

    Following the pre-operative steps before shoulder arthroscopic surgery will help in decreasing the risk of developing complications during the surgery, as well as quick recovery after the procedure. The preparation steps include:

    • The surgeon will ask you about your medical history before undergoing the procedure.
    • You may be asked to stop taking certain medications, like blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medicines a few days before the surgery.
    • You need to stop smoking and alcohol consumption a few days before the surgery.
    • You will be instructed on how long you need to fast before the surgery.
    • The doctor may recommend a few diagnostic tests, like blood tests, chest X-ray, and electrocardiogram, before the surgery to assess your overall health.

    Procedure for Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery

    The procedure of shoulder arthroscopic surgery is usually done using nerve blocks injected into the nerve or shoulder region. These nerve blocks will numb the shoulder and the arm. In some cases, the procedure is done under general anesthesia, which involves making the patient unconscious before starting the procedure.

    The shoulder arthroscopic surgery is performed in the following way:

    • The patient will either be lying on his/her side or be in a semi-seated position during the surgery.
    • The surgical team will shave the hair in the treatment area and clean the skin using an antiseptic solution. The arm is placed in a holding device to make sure that it stays still during the surgery.
    • A fluid is injected into the shoulder by the surgeon. This fluid inflates the shoulder joint and makes it easier for the surgeon to see inside.
    • The surgeon then creates a small keyhole-sized incision in the shoulder region. A tiny camera or arthroscope is then inserted through this incision.
    • The camera will project the images of the shoulder joint to a video screen. The surgeon views these images to detect the problem in the shoulder joint.
    • The surgeon will then make small incisions in the shoulder region to insert tiny surgical instruments and carry out the necessary treatment to repair the damaged shoulder.
    • After the completion of the surgery, the incisions will be closed using stitches or small bandages, and a large on top.
    • This procedure takes less than one hour to complete and most patients can go home one to two hours after the completion of the surgery.

    How Many Days Does It Take to Recover Post Shoulder Arthroscopy in Mumbai?

    Complete recovery following a shoulder arthroscopy in Mumbai may take one to six months. However, this period will vary depending on the extent of shoulder injury that was present, the type of surgery performed, and the healing capacity of the patient.

    The following are the recovery steps following a shoulder arthroscopy surgery:

    • There will be stitches and bandages on the operated area. Dissolvable sutures will disappear on their own within a few days, whereas non-dissolvable stitches may need to be removed by the surgeon after one or two weeks of surgery.
    • All the wound-care instructions provided by the doctor should be followed properly. The wound should be kept clean and dry till it heals completely.
    • You will need to wear a sling to support your shoulder for a minimum period of seven to ten days after surgery.
    • The doctor will recommend painkillers to relieve the pain and discomfort after the surgery.
    • Ice-pack application is recommended for the first day following surgery to reduce the pain and swelling after the procedure.
    • Physiotherapy exercises will be recommended to regain motion and strength in the shoulder region. The length of physiotherapy sessions will depend on the type of surgery that you have undergone.
    • How soon a patient can resume work or sporting activities depends on the type of surgery performed and the recovery of the patient. The recovery can usually take anywhere between one week to several months.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The shoulder is one of the largest joints in the human body controlling a wide array of arm and shoulder motions due to its flexibility. It is also the most complex joint made up of the humerus (upper arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade) and collarbone, connected by many fibrous connective tissues called ligaments. The shoulder has a ball-and-socket type joint in which the rotator cuff, made of muscles and tendons, keeps the head of your upper arm bone (ball) in the shoulder socket. Thanks to the flexibility of your shoulder joint, you can move your arms around in every direction. It makes the rotation of arms and placement of arms on your back possible. But this kind of flexibility also makes the shoulder prone to injuries.

    Based on the extent of your injury, the doctor ponders on the possible treatment options. Whether the damage can be treated with certain medications and physiotherapy, or it requires shoulder surgery. Often the doctors advise oral treatments initially to reduce inflammation and heal the injured tissues. However, holding up the surgical option for too long might worsen the injury.

    Shoulder surgery can resolve various issues concerning the shoulder. The shoulder joints can get naturally damaged or diseased with age, which can be repaired or replaced by shoulder surgery. The surgery can also mend the torn rotator cuff, ensuring painless motions of the arm and shoulders.

    Depending on the extent of injury or damage, there are various types of shoulder surgeries including,

    • Arthroplasty: Arthroplasty repairs and restores an unhealthy shoulder joint. The infected bone or part of it is replaced with a prosthetic joint (the whole joint or a part of it) or replace the infected part with artificial material. If a patient ails with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, then the orthopaedist often recommends arthroplasty.
    • Arthroscopy: In arthroscopy or keyhole surgery, the doctor inserts a camera via a small incision to examine the shoulder joint and the tissues around it. The doctor views a live feed of the insides of your joint while performing the surgery. Arthroscopic surgery is advised by the doctor for shoulder dislocations, tendinitis, repairing the torn cartilage and frozen shoulder.
    • Shoulder muscles are treated by soft tissue repairs.
    • In rotator cuff repairs, the tendons connecting the head of the humerus to the shoulder socket are repaired (usually connected back to the socket) via a surgical procedure.

    In addition to the surgery, the doctor may perform other treatments, including,

    • Bursectomy: A cushion-like sac called bursa found in the shoulder joint is removed using bursectomy.
    • Certain injuries, including fracture of collarbone and dislocation, can be treated by surgeries.

    As mentioned earlier, an orthopaedist recommends the type of surgery based on the extent of the ailment and various other factors.

    A surgical procedure used to inspect a joint, identify the issue and heal the ailment is called arthroscopy. Arthroscopy is made of two words, “arthro” or joint and “skopein” or “to look”. It means “to look within the joint”. It has been performed on patients suffering from shoulder ailments since the 1970s. The surgical orthopaedist slides a camera through a minimal incision into your shoulder joint during the shoulder arthroscopy. A live feed of the patient’s shoulder joint is viewed by the doctor while performing the surgery with scaled-down instruments.

    A regular surgery requires significant cuts to work on the wounds comfortably. But due to the small size of the arthroscope and surgical instruments, the incisions made by the doctor are pretty minuscule, resulting in less pain and faster recovery. With the miniature instruments, the cuts can be a lot more precise when compared to traditional surgery, resulting in lesser tissue damage.

    With ever-evolving and growing technology, shoulder arthroscopy has made the treatment and recovery of the patients easier and faster. Medications are prescribed by the doctor to moderate the pain afterwards. Physiotherapy is required depending upon the extent of ailment and surgery.

    Due to so much technology and skill being used, the arthroscopic shoulder surgery cost in Mumbai is higher than traditional surgery, but there are various benefits to it. You should visit the Shoulder And Knee Clinic and book a consultation with Dr Aditya Sai to undergo the treatment at affordable prices.

    For any ailment regarding your shoulder, the orthopaedist initially recommends certain non-surgical treatment options, which may include physiotherapy, medications and/or injections with a primary focus on alleviating the pain and inflammation and letting the tendons and ligaments heal naturally. Experts believe that the pain and inflammation are a response of your body trying to fight the ailment. If a shoulder is diseased, you may experience stiffness and swelling due to inflammation.

    Shoulder issues in most cases are either age-related or due to injury or wearing out the joints and muscles. A shoulder injury can be excruciatingly painful either way because of the vast array of motions of a shoulder. Shoulder arthroscopy can resolve various problems associated with rotator cuff, articular cartilage and other soft tissues around the shoulder.

    Following are various procedures performed by arthroscopic shoulder surgery:

    • Ligaments can be repaired.
    • Loose tissues and cartilage can be eliminated with arthroscopic surgery.
    • Shoulder dislocation can be resolved.
    • Rotator cuff repair.
    • Labrum repair or removal.

    Although shoulder arthroscopy can treat various acute and chronic issues, certain procedures still require traditional surgery, including shoulder replacement.

    It is tough and crucial to choose the right solution in the face of adversity. Just like that, choosing a surgeon when in pain with an injury or affliction is gruelling and time-consuming. Even if the injury is mild and chronic, surgery is only chosen once, which can be very stressful. Many things depend upon the surgery, like the pain after the surgery, the risks, the benefits and most importantly, the recovery time. The recovery time tells you when you can join your job again because a steady job is essential in this dog-eat-dog world.

    You might have somebody amongst your friends and family who had a bad experience where the surgery went wrong; the problem worsened instead of healing. The doctor did not take accountability for it, and it cost them a lot of money. A story like that might put you off from having the surgery.

    So the most crucial aspect of any procedure or surgery is the surgeon. For your shoulder ailments, you need an arthroscopic orthopaedist who is quite accomplished in their field. The orthopaedist should examine your problem extensively using tests and diagnosis methods. He should ask and listen to you about your medical history, including past conditions and any surgeries around the shoulder, any prior medications, anybody supplements you take, etc.

    Whether the surgeon has their face on giant billboards is not a testament to their experience or excellence. You can also check the surgeon’s credentials, i.e. their graduation, specialization, internship or training, fellowships, etc. These credentials set the excellent surgeons apart. They should also have board certification and licencing.

    It would help if you visited Shoulder And Knee Clinic in Mumbai or book an appointment online with Dr Aditya Sai. Dr Sai has been practising shoulder arthroscopy in Mumbai for the past 15 years, and his portfolio and ranks of happy patients speak for themselves.
