Here’s the overview of Rotator Cuff Surgery:


The rotator cuff is responsible for preserving the position of the humeral head in the shoulder joint. The rotator cuff consists of the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the teres minor, and the subscapularis muscles. A tendon attaches each muscle to the humerus. An injury to one of these tendons can be surgically repaired using a procedure known as a rotator cuff repair or keyhole shoulder surgery.

The signs that indicate Rotator Cuff Injury:

Rotator cuff tears affect people of all ages. Some patients are suitable surgical candidates, while others will seek alternative methods of care. Distinct types of rotator cuff tears exist. Overuse can cause inflammation in tendons or even complete tears. Bursitis can also cause shoulder pain.

The common signs include:

01

Shoulder weakness

03

Soreness in the shoulders that is exacerbated by activities such as lifting, pulling, and reaching behind or overhead

02

Not wanting to move your shoulder

04

Limitation of motion in the shoulder joint

Why do you need rotator cuff surgery?

Unfortunately, shoulder injuries are all too common. Rotator cuff tears are common in people who do manual labour or sports because their shoulders are used repeatedly and often. A fall or other shoulder injury can cause damage to the rotator cuff. Slow, gradual damage is also possible. Possible causes of the injury include:

  • Rotator cuff injuries, whether strains or rips
  • Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa that can occur in the shoulder.
  • Tendinitis, or tendon inflammation, in the shoulder

The most frequent signs are recurring pain, restricted arm movement, and muscle weakening. Surgery for rotator cuff repair is an option if noninvasive methods of treatment have failed.

FAQ Questions? Answered!

Small rips in the rotator cuff have a success rate of over 95% when treated surgically. Tears that are left untreated usually worsen in size, so it's important to get them fixed as soon as possible.
Although getting back to normal after rotator cuff surgery might be difficult, the majority of patients make a full recovery in around 6 months.
If a rotator cuff tear isn't treated, it can severely limit the shoulder's ability to move and function. A person's tear production may also rise over time. As a result, some people with partial rotator cuff tears may develop full tears.
Even with a "well-balanced" major rotator cuff tear, a patient's range of motion and ability to do daily tasks may not be compromised significantly. This is often accomplished through the recruitment of the deltoid muscle and a balanced force coupling across the glenohumeral joint.
If the rip is too large or the shoulder is already arthritic, surgery may not be an option to fix it. Surgical repair may not be possible if the rotator cuff tear is particularly severe (a massive rotator cuff tear) and has been present for a long period.
Depending on the procedure and the desired surgical technique, the typical cost of rotator cuff surgery varies. Other variables that impact this total cost range include the city in which the operation is performed, the orthopedic physician and facility selected, etc.
