Shoulder Arthroscopic Surgery

The complexity of the shoulder joint allows for a wide range of motion, but this requires all components to work correctly. Injury, aging and disease can impact function of the shoulder joint, requiring treatment. When surgery is needed, there are minimally-invasive options for some shoulder conditions. Dr. Kerisimasi Reynolds is an orthopedic surgeon who offers arthroscopic surgery for many shoulder conditions at his practice in the Bay area.

With arthroscopic surgery, the inside of the shoulder can be viewed and repaired through a tiny incision near the joint. An arthroscope can enter the joint, revealing the interior with a small digital camera and specialized lighting device. This technology allows Dr. Reynolds to have a better view of the joint and perform delicate repairs with micro instruments through the small incision.

When a smaller incision is used, there is less trauma to the shoulder tissues. The surgery is outpatient, allowing the patient to return home the same day. Arthroscopy is usually less painful and offers a quicker recovery than open surgery, often with fewer risks. For the patient, this can mean fewer costs and returning to their normal activities quicker than with other surgery options.

Shoulder Conditions Treated with Arthroscopy

The shoulder joint contains tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones and other elements that can require repair through surgery. Arthroscopy offers a minimally-invasive option with a smaller scar and less trauma for the patient. Some shoulder conditions that may be ideal for arthroscopic surgery include:

  • Acromioclavicular (AC) Joint Separation
  • Biceps Tendon Tears (connected at the shoulder)
  • Calcific Tendonitis
  • Fractures
  • Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
  • Infection
  • Labral Lesions or Tears (SLAP Tears & Bankart Tears)
  • Ligament tears
  • Os Acromiale
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome
  • Shoulder Instability
  • Suprascapular Nerve Compression

Shoulder conditions can be painful and reduce mobility. If you have been suffering from a shoulder condition that requires surgery, there may be minimally-invasive surgical options. Contact Dr. Reynolds to book an examination and consultation to find out if shoulder arthroscopic surgery may be the best treatment for your condition.

Dr. Reynolds is such an amazing doctor who is passionate and dedicates all his knowledge to help patients improve their health and injuries. I appreciate his patience and willingness to go above and beyond what is asked.

Dr Reynolds performed a very technical and complicated surgery on my son's shoulder last year. My son is (was!) a college football player and had 3 different shoulder surgeries to repair the same issue. After repeated failures I found Dr. Reynolds. He performed a Laterjet surgery which is something that is rarely done. Fast-forward a year, my son's shoulder has never had any more problems and he is stronger than ever. Thank you, Dr. Reynolds!

I went to see Dr. Raynolds because of his solid 5 star ratings. After seeing him, if I could, I would give him and his staff a solid 10 star ratings, and here is why: My 1st Impression: Beautiful and relaxing pictures of Canyons, welcoming & smiling staff, clean offices. My Time: Efficient and knowledgeable staff, and a reasonable wait time. The Best: .... Dr. Reynolds... every inch of his body exudes compassion. He listens attentively, takes his time to examine, he gives clear explanation of the injury, and answers all questions with care. Everything he did convinced me that I was lucky to have found him. (Thank you Yelp) :) I highly recommend Dr. Raynolds to my friends, my families and to anyone who's looking for the BEST and trustworthy surgeon. ~ Wishing you a smooth and quick recovery!

I went to see Dr. Reynolds last week because I have chronic pain in my hip. He was incredible helpful and knowledgeable. He greeted me with a warm smile and was patient and kind, showing me exactly what the problem is and the treatment alternatives. He spent a lot of time with me and I am extremely happy with the treatment plan he has for me. I can highly recommend him.

Dr Reynolds is a Rock Star! I ripped a bicep tendon clean off my forearm in September 2016. After countless phone calls to the huge "Non Profit" hospital chain I usually go to, and the realization that they wouldn't be able to see me in several weeks, I decided to look elsewhere. My son had previously been treated by Dr. Haber at a small clinic in Campbell, so I called the clinic, and got an appointment with his colleague, Dr Kerisimasi Reynolds. I have to say that I was a little hesitant at first, because of his young age, and I was wondering how many surgeries he had performed. Anyway, I got a really good vibe from him, and he was super professional and explained everything really well in terms I could understand. He got me an MRI the same day, a follow up visit the next day I think, and he was able to do the surgery within the next 5 days. I decided to go for it, and it was a 1 hour surgery with a long recovery. This was in September, and I have my last physical therapy session next week. That said, I'd go under the knife for Dr Kerisimasi again anytime if I needed to. He's totally on top of his game, knows a lot about all the latest advancements in orthopedic surgery, etc. He also followed up with personal phone calls, emails, and even gave me his cell phone number in case I had post operation questions or concerns. I've been very active my whole life in a variety of sports and outdoors activities, and he has the mindset that he wants to enable you to get back to those activities as soon as possible, which I really appreciate. I give him an A+. He performed a state-of-the-art tendon reattachment surgery, and I'm basically fully recovered by now. I'm lifting weights, working without pain, and hope to be back in my river kayak this spring! I hope I don't have to see him in the operating room again, but if I do, I know I'm in good hands :-)
