My doctor ordered a shoulder arthroscopy. What will he be able to learn from this procedure?

Shoulder arthroscopy will show almost all problems within the shoulder, but is only used these days for surgical treatment of diagnosed disorders. Diagnosis should be achieved by X-rays and other tests. I would need to be clear therefore if you have been referred for it as a test or treatment. If as a test I would respectfully suggest getting another opinion.

As said earlier there are many aspects of shoulder problems that can be treated by an arthroscopy and a firm diagnosis should be established before operation using analysis of shoulder complaints, examination of the shoulder, x-rays and Ultrasound scan (or MRI Scan).
