Rotator Cuff Tear Repair Surgery

Overview of Rotator Cuff Tear Repair Surgery

The rotator cuff is a common source of pain in the shoulder. It refers to a group of four muscles and tendons that attach to the head of the humerus and stabilizes the shoulder as it moves in space. The most commonly affected tendon is the supraspinatus tendon.  Issues with the rotator cuff commonly cause problems with overhead activity, pain with sleeping on the shoulder, and moving the shoulder in certain motions.  If torn, the rotator cuff can cause progressive pain and disability in the shoulder.  Unfortunately, the rotator cuff has poor healing potential on its own and often requires surgical repair in many cases.
