Shoulder arthroscopy

The shoulder is a highly mobile joint and provides a wide range of movements. Hence, it is prone to injury, especially in athletes participating in throwing sports, eg. cricket, baseball, tennis, badminton and squash, and climbing activities like trekking,etc.

Shoulder arthroscopy is useful in patients with :

  • Recurrent shoulder dislocation
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Impingement syndrome
  • Cartilage injury
  • Labral tears (eg. SLAP tear)
  • Biceps tendinitis

Dr. Nayak has undergone the ISAKOS Advanced Shoulder Arthroscopy Course and regularly utilises the latest techniques for his patients.
