Shoulder arthroscopy in France
Most shoulder injuries occur as a result of injury, overuse and/or age-related wear and tear.
Shoulder arthroscopy is used to inspect, diagnose and repair problems inside the shoulder joint. The term itself literally means to “look in the joint”.
For the surgery, the surgeon uses a tiny camera, called an arthroscope, to look inside your joint. They may also use the camera to guide surgical instruments and perform techniques.
Because the incision used is significantly reduced in size, subsequent healing is less painful and faster for patients. Shoulder arthroscopy is used when non-surgical alternatives are not possible or haven’t resulted in the desired outcomes.

2. The subluxation of the shoulder - feeling of incomplete dislocation of the joint often spontaneously replaced in minutes.
3. Painful instability - the pain is usually in the foreground without the patient being necessarily aware of the ligament origin of their pain.

2. Arthroscopic surgery repositions ligaments attached to their anatomical location using wire and bone anchors. In the case of a shoulder arthroscopy, arthroscopic Bankart procedures are predominantly used here in France.
This intervention is intended to restore the anatomy. This surgery will not give you a 100% normal shoulder. This is a joint repair that is intended to give you a reliable joint, strong and mobile, which you can normally use to perform the gestures of everyday life and sports.
