Shoulder Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical procedure performed for joint problems. Shoulder arthroscopy is performed using a pencil-sized instrument called an Arthroscope. The arthroscope consists of a light system and camera to project images to a computer screen for your surgeon to view the surgical site... Arthroscopy is used to treat disease conditions and injuries involving the bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the shoulder joint.

Advantages of Arthroscopy

  • Less Pain
  • Shorter Hospital Stay
  • Fewer Complications
  • Faster Recovery

Patient Testimonials

  • I'm a 42 year old man who was suffering from a bone spur that caused the tearing of one of the tendons of my rotator cuff. I work in the Forestry industry so needless to say my job is very physically demanding. Also I love what I do and the thought of being out of work for an extended period of recovery was daunting. Dr. McLaughlin, being a true credit to his field, set my mind at ease with his knowledge...
  • Dr. McLaughlin is a great surgeon. I had rotator cuff surgery in January 2019 and I’m back on the golf course. I would highly recommend him for any shoulder issues you may have. Not only is he an excellent surgeon, he makes sure you are well informed of your options. Don’t look any further than Dr McLaughin at North Shore Shoulder.
  • I had rotator cuff surgery by Dr. McLaughlin on January 4. I was prepared to suffer a long recovery but 2.5 months later I am beyond happy with the results! I have a few more PT sessions, but I am feeling the pain ease up every week. Having the procedure at the outpatient center was beyond my expectation, in and out in half a day. Wow!
  • Dr. McLaughlin performed a Rotator Cuff Repair on me back in November 2017. It was done so well that my recovery went amazingly fast and was basically painless. He develops a good professional relationship letting you know what to expect through the entire procedure as well as the after care. Thanks for the GREAT job and if I ever need work done again...I will be back!
  • My experience was one of quality care with Dr. Robert E. McLaughlin II,MD. Professional, caring, and trustworthy. I would recommend Dr. McLaughlin highly for getting the job done. My rotator cuff surgery was a great success. Thanks to him and his awesome staff I was back on the mend and back to work in a few months time. Thank- You for being the best Rotator Cuff Surgeon...
