Shoulder surgery is performed by orthopaedic surgeons, many of whom have chosen to specialise in the treatment of shoulder and upper limb conditions. They provide treatment for chronic conditions such as arthritis of the shoulder and frozen shoulder, and acute conditions such as trauma and sports injuries. Commonly performed procedures include shoulder replacement, shoulder resurfacing, rotator cuff repair, capsular release for frozen shoulder and shoulder arthroscopy.
With an extensive choice of excellent surgical facilities and expert surgeons worldwide, travelling abroad for shoulder surgery provides an attractive and cost-effective alternative to treatment in the UK. Prices are often considerably lower than at home and there is the option to combine treatment with a recuperative holiday.
