Rotator Cuff Repair
Rotator cuff injuries are common and can result from tendinitis, bursitis, aging, falling, lifting, pulling, and/or repetitive stress. In examining your shoulder, an orthopedist will look for structural problems and pain points. Imaging tests such as X-rays and an MRI will confirm a diagnosis. Your orthopedist will look for bone spurs, tendon tears, and deteriorated muscle fibers. The treatment goal is to relieve pain and regain strength and function. Approximately half of patients make a full recovery using nonsurgical treatment. Among the benefits of nonsurgical care is avoiding risks commonly associated with major surgery, but a disadvantage is that the tear may increase over time if not properly healed. If an orthopedist determines the condition may be repaired, he/she will perform a surgery removing inflamed or damaged tissue and remove any bone spurs. This surgery can be performed arthroscopically using minimally invasive precision instruments.Learn more
