Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
Learn about this procedure and watch a detailed video that shows you exactly what is involved.
The Rotator Cuff is made up of a group of muscles and tendons that hold the head of the humerus in the shoulder socket. The muscles can sustain injuries or tears and become inflamed, causing a decrease in mobility and range of motion, as well as a significant amount of pain. If, after more conservative measures prove ineffective, the surgeon may deem surgical repair of the rotator cuff necessary. Performing the procedure arthroscopically allows for a faster recovery time because of the minimally invasive techniques. This method also minimizes unnecessary additional stress to the injured area.
