Today we performed a shoulder arthroscopy at Penmellyn vets. We turn the theatre lights down at our St Columb surgery theatre during arthroscopy so subtle colour changes of cartilage are better visualised.

The 9 year old Collie had marked lameness due to a frayed medial glenohumeral ligament and an inflamed biceps tendon origin. He was sent home with cortisone and rest advised.
