Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure for a Rotator Cuff Repair.
Rotator Cuff Repair is a type of surgery to fix a torn tendon in the shoulder. The procedure can be done with a lUSAe (‘open’) incision or with shoulder arthroscopy, which uses small button-hole sized incisions.The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that form a cuff over the shoulder joint. These muscles and tendons hold the arm in its ‘ball and socket’ joint and help the shoulder to rotate. The role of the tendons is to hold the powerful shoulder muscles to the shoulder and arm bones. The tendons can be torn from overuse or injury.
