Shoulder Procedures

1) Shoulder replacements- When arthritis pain becomes debilitating, shoulder replacement and resurfacing are permanent treatments. Shoulder resurfacing is a bone preserving alternative. I was the first surgeon to do Shoulder resurfacing in Chennai. See here. I have performed the first combined metal and stem cell biological resurfacing in the world. 
A reverse shoulder replacement is a very useful procedure in cases of bone and soft tissue loss. I am one of the few surgeons to have done this procedure in India. I got trained in these advanced procedures in the UK and Belgium.
2) Arthroscopic Bankart repair- I perform arthroscopic Bankart repair or Latarjet procedure for recurrent shoulder dislocation.
3) Rotator cuff repair- I perform arthroscopic and mini open repair. 
4) PRP & Stem cell treatment of partial and complete rotator cuff tears and other shoulder conditions.
5) Arthroscopic repair for SLAP lesions.
6) Resistant cases of frozen shoulder are advised arthroscopic release or manipulation under anesthesia (MUA).
7) In severe fractures, replacement a hemi-arthroplasty or a reverse shoulder replacement) may be needed.

Reverse shoulder replacement  is done for shoulder arthritis resulting from massive rotator cuff tears. It is also indicated in severe 3 and 4 part proximal humeral fractures with comminution and bone loss.  It reverses the position of the ball and socket in the shoulder. It requires high level of experience to perform this procedure. See this news report.
