Stanford's expert shoulder surgeons specialize in the comprehensive treatment of all disorders affecting the shoulder. We treat conditions that have failed prior treatment utilizing minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery. Our shoulder surgeons also focus in joint replacement surgery for more complex problems such as advanced arthritis or irreparable rotator cuff tears.
Shoulder surgery advantages
Minimally invasive treatment
Arthroscopic surgery is a technique that uses small incisions and a tiny camera to treat many injuries of the shoulder. Injuries resulting in a labral or rotator cuff tear are effectively treated arthroscopically.
Arthroscopic surgeries are done on an outpatient basis and generally take 1-2 hours to complete. Patients experience less pain and scarring following surgery, return home on the day of surgery, and are able to quickly recover.
