What is rotator cuff repair, and how is it performed?
A rotator cuff repair is a surgical procedure to repair a partially or completely torn rotator cuff. The goal of this procedure is to repair the torn tendons using small sutures to create strength and stability in the tendon.
Once the sutures are put in place, small anchors are used to reattach the tendon to its original position within the shoulder joint.
A rotator cuff repair was performed for many years as an open incision procedure. But, at OrthoNeuro, modern surgical techniques now allow the overwhelming majority of rotator cuff repairs to be performed arthroscopically.
In most cases, rotator cuff repair is performed as an outpatient procedure by the Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons at OrthoNeuro.
During a rotator cuff repair procedure:
Total procedure time is usually less than 1 hour and you are able to return home the same day as your procedure.
Physical therapy is an important part of recovery as it helps improve stability in the shoulder as well as increase range of motion.
The Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeons at OrthoNeuro have performed thousands of rotator cuff repairs and are experts in this procedure.
The decision of what approach is best for you will be determined by what you and your OrthoNeuro Joint Replacement Specialist feel are best.
