Arthroscopic Subacromial Decompression

Arthroscopic Subacromial Decompression (ASD) is a surgical procedure performed by Dr. Manu Gautam to address shoulder impingement syndrome. This condition occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become irritated and inflamed as they pass through the subacromial space, resulting in pain and restricted movement.

During ASD, Dr. Manu Gautam utilizes an arthroscope, a small camera, and specialized surgical instruments inserted through tiny incisions in the shoulder. This minimally invasive approach allows for a clearer view of the shoulder joint without the need for large surgical openings.

The procedure involves removing any bony spurs or overgrown bone from the underside of the acromion, the bony prominence above the shoulder joint. By creating more space within the subacromial area, pressure on the rotator cuff tendons is reduced, alleviating pain and improving shoulder function.

Dr. Manu Gautam’s expertise in ASD ensures precise surgical technique and optimal outcomes for patients suffering from shoulder impingement syndrome. Following surgery, patients typically undergo physical therapy to restore strength and range of motion to the shoulder. With Dr. Gautam’s skill and dedication to patient care, individuals can expect a smoother recovery and a return to their active lifestyle.
