Arthroscopic Lysis of Adhesions

Arthroscopic surgery performed for persistent froze shoulder.

Arthroscopic Lysis of Adhesions

If a frozen shoulder persists despite cortisone injections and therapy the patient may be a candidate for an arthroscopic lysis of adhesions. The shoulder arthroscopy is a surgical procedure done with a small camera and instruments through small incisions called portals. This procedure allows the surgeon to directly visualize and release the adhesions that are restricting motion. The shoulder will also be manipulated in the operating room to measure the motion after the capsular release. Physical therapy will be a crucial part of the postoperative recovery and will begin almost immediately after surgery to ensure that the patient retains the motion gained in the operating room. The patient’s progress will be carefully monitored by their surgeon and physical therapists. Once the patient’s motion has improved it is critical that they continue to do the exercises on their own to avoid developing the problem again in the future.
