Shoulder surgery

Expert care for shoulder concerns.

At BMI The Lincoln Hospital, we offer a range of effective treatment options for people with shoulder pain.

Shoulder pain can be caused by various conditions, including:

  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • A sprained or fractured shoulder
  • A torn cartilage
  • Frozen shoulder
  • A torn rotator cuff

The nature of your shoulder pain will vary depending on the condition you have. If non-surgical treatment options, such as medication and heat therapy, have not helped alleviate your shoulder pain, you might need surgery to resolve the issue.

At BMI The Lincoln Hospital, our network of Consultants perform a range of surgical procedures to treat, manage and even eliminate shoulder pain.

Rotator cuff repair surgery starting from £7,167*

Your rotator cuff is formed of four muscles and tendons that come together to hold your shoulder firmly in place. You can damage your rotator cuff tendon through overuse or injury. If this happens, your Consultant will perform rotator cuff repair surgery to reattach the torn area of your tendon to the head of your humerus (upper arm bone).

Shoulder replacement surgery

The type of shoulder replacement surgery that you will require will depend on the condition of your shoulder. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon could perform partial shoulder replacement surgery, when the head of your humerus (upper arm bone) that forms the ball of your shoulder joint is removed and replaced with a prosthesis. In other cases, your Surgeon will also replace the socket of your shoulder joint with a prosthesis. This is known as a total shoulder replacement. Your Consultant will ensure you know what to expect from your shoulder replacement surgery before it happens.

Shoulder arthroscopy

This is a form of keyhole surgery to examine the inside of your shoulder joint, helping diagnose and treat a range of problems. A camera will be inserted through very small incisions in your shoulder to help diagnose the problems you are having. If possible, your Orthopaedic Surgeon will also perform treatment during the procedure.

Surgery for a dislocated shoulder

When your shoulder is dislocated, your humerus or upper arm bone is either partially or completely removed from its socket in your shoulder blade. Your Orthopaedic Surgeon will manipulate your shoulder and return your humerus to its usual position through a non-surgical technique known as reduction. This involves gently moving your arm around your shoulder joint until it fits back into your socket.

Shoulder manipulation for frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder causes severe stiffness and reduced mobility in your shoulder. Shoulder manipulation is a non-invasive procedure during which your Orthopaedic Surgeon will gently manipulate (move) your frozen shoulder through a variety of motions to improve mobility and reduce discomfort.
