In an arthroscopic surgery for shoulder arthritis, the amount of pain relief any given patient experiences as a result of the procedure is unpredictable and will vary from patient to patient. It is also worth noting that this “clean out” does not eliminate arthritis from the joint entirely. If arthritis progresses, more surgery may be needed in the future.
This is why it is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Goradia at G2 Orthopedics and Sports Medicine to determine what the best treatment method is for you. Arthroscopic Surgery for Shoulder Arthritis can be a great remedy for those seeking some pain relief and improved mobility in their shoulder, but it may not have the same lasting effects as a more permanent solution such as a total shoulder replacement.
