Arm reduction and lift (Brachioplasty) is a form of body contouring (shaping). It is normally performed on patients with large amounts of loose or sagging skin on the upper arms.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome happens when the nerve that crosses the front of your wrist (the median nerve) is trapped causing pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand and arm. The nerve passes through the carpal tunnel, a canal in the wrist that carries all the tendons of the hand. If these tendons are swollen, the nerve is squeezed and becomes trapped.
The ulnar nerve goes round the back of the inner side of your elbow (sometimes called your funny bone). It then goes through a tight tunnel between the forearm muscles.

Shoulder decompression (or subacromial depression) is the cleaning and repairing of damaged tendons around the upper arm and shoulder area.
Shoulder manipulation is a treatment for frozen shoulder, that consists of stretching and releasing the shoulder capsule.
Your shoulder is a ball and socket joint. The top of your arm (humerus) fits into a socket (glenoid). Wear and tear or an injury can result in pain and restricted movement in the joint.
This is surgery to repair the lining of the shoulder joint, which can be pulled away from the bone following a dislocation.
The rotator cuff is formed of four tendons and the adjacent muscles that attach your arm to the top of your shoulder blade. Overuse or injury can cause tears in the tendons.
Although called tennis elbow, you may get this injury and not even have played tennis. It can happen after the repeated strain of gripping or twisting your hand or wrist.
