Surgical Loosening of an Ankylosed Joint?

Answer

The surgical loosening of an ankylosed joint is called arthrolysis. This surgical procedure loosens the joint so the person can regain mobility again. Often a joint, such as a shoulder, will become tight and immobile. This is called a frozen shoulder. This may happen as the result of an accident or injury, or it may just happen on its own as a result of age or a medical condition, such as diabetes. In arthrolysis, the tendons on each side of the joint are loosened so the person can move the joint again.
