Shoulder & elbow

Shoulder & elbow surgery in Switzerland - Ticino.

The shoulder and elbow joints enable complex movements and rank amongst the most mobile joints in the human body. Mobility can be impaired through considerable strain, broken bones or sprains.

  • Shoulder instability

    If there are repeated incidents of incomplete or complete dislocation of the shoulder, then this points to shoulder instability. Today, arthroscopic stabilisation of the instability is the standard treatment.

  • Arthrosis of the shoulder joint

    Arthrosis of the shoulder joint involves wear and tear of the shoulder joint as a consequence of erosion of the cartilage substance. If the symptoms cannot be permanently alleviated with conservative forms of treatment, such as physiotherapy, surgery is a promising option.

  • Unstable elbow

    An acute unstable elbow is caused by major damage to the elbow joint. A chronic unstable elbow is the consequence of inadequate healing. Surgical reconstruction is required in both cases.

  • 3D replicas of scanned images

    Three-dimensional surveys gives the opportunity for surgeons to analyse the problem exactly as if the patient was in front of them.
