Written by FoundHealth.

Possible Complications

Complications are rare, but no procedure is completely free of risk. If you are planning to have arthroscopic shoulder surgery, your doctor will review a list of possible complications which may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Nerve injury
  • Damage to soft tissue
  • Instability or stiffness in joint
  • Fracture
  • Reaction to anesthesia used

Some factors that may increase the risk of complications include:

  • Recent or chronic illness
  • Certain medicines—especially those that increase bleeding (eg, aspirin )
  • Smoking or alcohol use
  • Previous shoulder surgery (may cause damage)

Call Your Doctor

After you leave the hospital, contact your doctor if any of the following occurs:

  • Signs of infections, including fever and chills
  • Redness, swelling, increasing pain, excessive bleeding, or discharge from the incision sites
  • Cough, trouble breathing, or chest pain
  • Severe nausea or vomiting
  • Pain becomes worse or swelling increases
  • Tingling or numbness that will not go away, especially in arms and hands

In case of an emergency, CALL 911.
