Frozen Shoulder

What is Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder is a common condition in my practice and can be more prevalent in patients with diabetes. In this video I explain what frozen shoulder is and how I treat it.

 

What happens during frozen shoulder surgery?

I prefer to do surgery for frozen shoulder with the patient awake if we decide it is right for them. The scar tissue at the front of the shoulder is vaporised and a gentle manipulation is done at the end of the procedure with injection of steroid into the joint to reduce recurrence. This video demonstrates one of my key-hole capsular releases for frozen shoulder.
