To learn if arthroscopic shoulder surgery could help you overcome your pain, turn to Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group – a division of Florida Medical Clinic. Our center is located a short drive from St. Petersburg, Florida, and is one of the longest-running orthopedic practices in the Tampa Bay area.
Arthroscopic shoulder surgery can be a viable treatment option for patients in St. Petersburg and beyond whose pain and stiffness does not respond to conservative methods like physical therapy, bracing, and medication. During this minimally invasive procedure, a thin, pencil-like tool known as an arthroscope is inserted into the shoulder joint. The arthroscope has a small camera affixed to the end which sends live images of the joint to a large monitor, allowing the surgeon to view the joint up-close and guide other small tools without having to make large incisions.
Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group’s board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Murphy, performs arthroscopic shoulder surgery to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder dislocation
- Labrum injuries
- Ligament injuries
- Bone spurs
- Inflamed or loose cartilage
