      Frequently Asked Questions

      The shoulder joint consists of the humerus (the upper arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade) and clavicle (collarbone) connected by tissues called ligaments. A rotator cuff is formed by a group of four muscles that surround these bones. A tough connective tissue known as a tendon helps connect these muscles to the bones. Cartilage layers, joint fluid and a bursa sac that cushions your joints are also present in the shoulder joint. Among all the other joints in your body, the shoulder joint is the most flexible one. It can be rotated in front, to the side or even behind the body. But this flexibility is also the reason for instability and susceptibility to injuries.

      On analysing your problem in detail, non-surgical methods are preferred before jumping to the surgical approach. But there are cases in which delay in surgery is likely to make the situation more difficult to treat in the near future. If you want to achieve results in the long run, timely and correct diagnosis and treatment are necessary.

      Various diseases and conditions of shoulder joints can cause damaged, degenerated, or diseased shoulders that can be treated using the surgical approach. Rotator cuff tears, shoulder separation, and shoulder dislocations are some of the conditions treated using surgery. It is possible to restore a fully functioning shoulder joint that has a pain-free range of motion.

      The various types of shoulder surgeries include-

      • Arthroscopy
        Surgery performed using an arthroscope, a long, thin tube with a camera attached, is arthroscopy. An incision is made over or near the joint to insert this tube. The inside images of your joints are captured and transmitted to the video screen by the camera. These images help your doctor to perform the procedure. You may need an arthroscopy for dislocated shoulders, specific rotator cuff problems, soft tissue repairs, shoulder tendonitis, frozen shoulder and repair of torn ligaments and cartilages.
      • Arthroplasty
        It is used to treat diseased joints. The arthritic or damaged surfaces of the bones will be removed and replaced with artificial implants known as prosthesis. You may need a partial or complete replacement, based on your condition. Arthroplasty might be recommended to treat- degenerative shoulder diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Some fractures may also require the replacement of the joint.
      • Soft tissue repair: It treats the damage to the shoulder muscles.
      • Rotator cuff repair: The procedure helps reattach a torn rotator cuff in case of a torn tendon in the shoulder joint.

      In addition to the shoulder surgery, a surgeon may perform additional procedures like-

      • Bursectomy or Bursa sac repair-
        The Bursa sac provides cushioning to your shoulder joint. If it gets damaged, it is treated using a bursectomy.
      • Dislocation or bone fracture repair-
        Certain fracture types of the collarbone, shoulder dislocations and humerus, which are severe, may require surgical methods.

      If you seek the best arthroscopic shoulder surgeon in Mumbai, Dr Aditya Sai can be one of your options. He has extensive experience in treating shoulder related injuries.

      Shoulder surgery is required to treat damaged, dislocated, degenerated or even diseased shoulder joints. As mentioned previously, your shoulder comprises various parts and contains cartilages, fluids, and tendons to connect the muscles and bones. There is also a bursa sac present between the bones and tendons to provide cushioning.

      Your shoulder joint can be damaged because of a disease, ageing, injury or overuse. The surgery is usually done if the other less complicated methods prove to be of no use. It would help if you enquired about all the options available and even seek a second opinion before finalising the surgery.

      Surgery can be recommended to treat the following-

      • Tendonitis: Inflammation of tendons that are not responding to the other conservative treatments.
      • Fracture: The fracture of the upper arm bone or collarbone.
      • Rotator cuff tears: It can be both partial or total tear.
      • Shoulder separation: It can include both partial and complete tear of some of the shoulder ligaments.
      • Shoulder dislocation: Shoulder dislocation can recur often.
      • Frozen Shoulder: Known as adhesive capsulitis that causes stiffness in the shoulder joint.
      • Cartilage conditions: Cartilage conditions including loose or torn cartilage.
      • Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa sac.
      • Arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis can cause shoulder inflammation.

      To get an appropriate diagnosis and satisfactory outcomes, make sure you choose the best doctor for shoulder pain in Mumbai, such as Dr Aditya Sai. Their experience and knowledge will enable you to get the most effective treatment possible.

      Arthroscopy is used to see, diagnose and sometimes treat the problems inside your joints. Two greek words, "arthro" meaning joint and "skopein", meaning - to look, form the word arthroscopy. A small tube with a camera is inserted via a small incision into the shoulder joint during the shoulder arthroscopy. As the camera projects the inside images on the screen, the surgeon can guide the small surgical tools accordingly.

      Since the arthroscope and other tools used are very small, large incisions are not required as in open surgery. Using small incisions helps both, making the process less painful for the patient and shortening the recovery time. The shoulder arthroscopy dates back to the 1970s. It has broken barriers of the standard lengthy procedures that require extensive recovery periods. With the yearly advancements, shoulder arthroscopy keeps on improving year by year.

      Dr Aditya Sai is one of the best shoulder surgeons in Mumbai who keeps a practical outlook towards the treatment and keeps himself updated with all the new advancements to provide the best treatment to his patients.

      When searching for a shoulder surgeon, it can be a very stressful and anxious experience, especially if you have an acute injury; you don't have much time to browse the options. If your injury is chronic and you have time, there is still the worry about the decision because once you finalise, there is no going back. The anxiety about getting back to your routine and work and paying off your bills just piles up on all this. The anxiety is piqued, especially if you are the sole earner for your family or a young athlete who is about to get a sports scholarship, and the injury is interfering with it. Most people worry about the outcome and the pain even before deciding on the surgeon. They fear, what if the damage worsens after the surgery. Some people have also seen a coworker or neighbour or someone having a bad experience with shoulder surgery and hence get paranoid about the decision.

      With all these worries, how do you choose the best surgeon for you? So firstly, get a doctor who is an orthopaedic generalist or shoulder specialist. An orthopaedic generalist is the one who does the critical job of stabilising your hips, knees, shoulders, wrists, feet or hands in the emergency room after a fall or an accident. They are usually experienced in a variety of injuries but not necessarily specialise in shoulder injuries. So if you happen to pick any orthopaedic surgeon at random, it's just like getting a lottery ticket rather than seeking out a doctor who can tend to your specific needs.

      Dr Aditya Sai is the founder of Shoulder and Knee Clinic and has published articles in many academic journals related to this field. He conducts research and uses the latest techniques to treat his patients with the best quality treatment possible. He is indeed one of the best shoulder specialists in Mumbai who has practised treating shoulder arthroscopically for more than 15 years. He is an expert in hip, knee and shoulder procedures.

      It would be best to keep in mind to check the surgeon's credentials like the board certification, state licensing and even special training and fellowships. The experience can set them apart from many other surgeons you have got. Published articles, researches, sponsors and recommendations from known shoulder surgeons are required to gain membership of any society. Checking this makes your job easier. In the end, the technique will matter more than popularity. So make sure you choose a surgeon based on their credentials and experience and not on photos published on billboards or newspapers. It will ensure you get the best results after the surgery.
