Rotator Cuff Surgery
Rotator cuff surgery is typically performed to repair a torn tendon in the shoulder. The surgery is either completed with an open incision or with shoulder arthroscopy, which uses small, buttonhole incisions to repair the site of injury.
The rotator cuff is a group of four tendons that help stabilize the shoulder. A Rotator cuff Disorder can become severe if nonsurgical treatment has failed to improve the shoulderŐs movement and strength.
Surgery of the rotator cuff can involve the following:
Rotator Cuff Tear
