When to Consider Rotator Cuff Repair

Since we are always active and on the go, there is always a chance that we will meet an accident or get injured. At some unexpected circumstances, we could break a bone or twist an ankle even if we are cautious with our movements. We might even get a torn tendon in the shoulder. It is during this case that we may need rotator cuff repair.

What Happens During the Procedure?

Rotator cuff repair is a procedure where the tendon is reattached back to the bone where it was torn from. An arthroscope is used to detect any tear in the cartilage, ligaments, or tendons in your shoulder. Once the problem is identified, surgery then begins.

Why Is the Procedure Performed?

There are various reasons why rotator cuff repair is needed.

  • There is a large tear on your rotator cuff, also known as complete rotator tear.
  • You experience shoulder pain while resting at night, and the pain has not improved even with regular exercise for the past six to 12 months.
  • You are active in sports or work and use your shoulders more often during these times.
  • You are unable to do normal activities because of too much weakness.
