The most common cause for surgery is a labral tear. The Labrum is a bumper of tissue that exists within the rotator cuff in the shoulder. Due to over exertion or a sudden injury, a tear can cause great discomfort and limitations to the movement of the shoulder. Due to the complex nature of the joint with the network of tissues and ligaments that make up the rotator cuff in the shoulder, special methods must be employed. Arthroscopy/ Arthroscopic Surgery is a procedure that employs the use of surgical tools that are inserted into the body through small incisions.
