Welcome to HBGMC
The capsule and ligaments of the shoulder are attached to the labrum, and thus encircle the head of the humerus and prevent the head of humerus from slipping out of the joint. Arthroscopy of the shoulder – a type of keyhole surgery – is performed using three small openings (1 cm) called portals, in the front and back of the shoulder. Delicate instruments and telescopes are passed into the joint, and the inside of the joint is visualized on a TV monitor. Most common conditions can be treated with arthroscopy.
