Arthroscopic surgery is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint with the help of an arthroscope, a small, fiber-optic instrument consisting of a lens, light source, and video camera. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be carried out through a few small incisions.

Shoulder Labral Repair

During shoulder labral repair, the torn labrum is reattached to the socket of the shoulder with anchors and sutures. If the biceps is torn as it inserts into the labrum it can also be reattached to the bone in order to restore function and stability to the shoulder.
