Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery Explained

An injury to the rotator cuff which fails to subside through non-surgical means may warrant a repair surgery.

  • Rotator cuff refers to the tendons and muscles which give stability to the shoulder joints and aid in moving the arms up and down.
  • A rotator cuff repair procedure may be recommended in the following cases:
    • A tear caused by a sudden injury
    • No improvement in the rotator cuff even after 3-6 months of conventional nonsurgical treatments
  • Rotator cuff surgery involves debridement from empty spaces where the rotator cuff moves in the shoulder.
  • It also involves relieving any pressure off the rotator cuff tendon.
  • You might be recommended some active exercises (with the help of a physiotherapist) 3-4 months after your surgery.
  • Watch this video in which a leading orthopedic surgeon talks at length on what the procedure entails.
