Shoulder Arthroscopy in Panama

It is a local surgery performed through an arthroscope that allows the identification of internal injuries and their repair without subjecting the patient to an open surgical operation. Arthroscopy has two functions: The diagnostic one, where the physician can carefully explore the joint damage affecting the patient, and the therapeutic one, applying repair techniques to the lesions found through the same arthroscopic method.

Elbow Arthroscopy: Risks and Complications

The chances of certain complications occurring in the patient are always present. Among the most common complications are:

Disabling the optimal movement of the joint.

The patient may experience a decrease in the strength of elbow movement and power.

The elbow has multiple neurovascular structures that can be affected during surgery, however, this is not a common problem.

This will depend directly on the patient’s health conditions. Smokers, diabetics, people on medication or elderly people are the most prone to present this type of problem.

Elbow Arthroscopy: Recovery Time

As an expert orthopedic specialist in Panama, I work on my patients’ cases based on a personalized recovery protocol. Each patient has unique conditions, activities, and injuries, so establishing an individual recovery time is vital to achieve the goals.

In general terms, injuries that do not involve the rotator cuff usually recover within one to two weeks after surgery. On the other hand, those directly affecting the rotator cuff can take up to 3 months to recover. In the case of athletes with throwing or contact-related injuries, the recovery period could extend up to 6 months. If you have any doubts, contact me! That way, I can analyze your case and provide a more precise recovery diagnosis.

Elbow arthroscopy: Duration

Like the price and recovery time, the duration of each procedure varies depending on the type of existing injury and the multiple repairs that need to be done. However, if we talk about defining a specific time frame, we could say that arthroscopic surgeries have an approximate duration of 30 to 90 minutes. The individual pathologies of each patient are unique, therefore, the time of the procedure may increase or decrease according to the case.
