Issues related to frequent bone dislocation, rotator cuff tear, ligament tear, etc., can be cured via this procedure. Mostly occurring in case of athletes, as a result of accidental injuries or traumatic impact in individuals, the shoulder arthroscopy is performed on millions of candidates all across the world.
