Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Harbury of Newcastle Orthopaedics specialises in shoulder surgery including mini-open rotator cuff repair and shoulder impingement surgery. Procedures are performed in Maitland and Newcastle.
Shoulder Impingement Surgery
This outpatient procedure relieves pain by decompressing the tight space around the rotator tendon of the shoulder joint. The surgeon removes the bursa and trims back the acromion bone to allow for normal pain-free motion. In most cases, this procedure is performed arthroscopically.
Mini-Open Rotator Cuff Repair
This surgical procedure is used to inspect and reattach torn tendons in the shoulder’s rotator cuff. The initial part of the shoulder surgery is performed arthroscopically through small tubes. An open incision may be needed if the damage is severe.
