Rotator Cuff Repair From Orthopedic Doctors in the New Albany, IN, Area

Rotator Cuff Repair New Albany IN Rotator cuff injuries are relatively common among athletes and people who frequently perform overhead motions, such as contractors and painters. The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles that holds the shoulder joint securely in place. If one or more of these muscles becomes torn, pinched, or inflamed, rotator cuff repair surgery may be recommended to address the source of discomfort and restore normal shoulder function.

Do I Need Rotator Cuff Repair?

Rotator cuff surgery may be appropriate if you have an injury to this area that does not respond to conservative measures like physical therapy and medication. Possible signs of a rotator cuff injury include:

  • Shoulder or arm weakness
  • Shoulder aching and pain that worsens when you lift, pull, or reach behind you
  • Reduced range of motion in the shoulder

There is a wide range of shoulder conditions that can cause these symptoms, and many can be effectively treated or managed without surgery. However, only a doctor can diagnose the source of your pain and prescribe an appropriate treatment plan. Be sure to schedule an appointment with an orthopedic physician if you have shoulder pain, stiffness, or weakness that persists for more than a few days.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
