What does rotator cuff surgery involve?

The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles that help hold the components of the shoulder joint securely in place while still allowing for a wide range of motion. Sometimes, the tendons of the rotator cuff can be stretched or torn due to repeated strenuous movements or a sudden force. When this happens, rotator cuff surgery to repair damaged tendons and reattach them to the bone may be recommended.

There are multiple approaches that can be taken to rotator cuff surgery. Some patients may be candidates for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, which can be performed through a very small incision using specially designed instruments. More complex tears may require an open or mini-open approach, which involves making a slightly larger surgical incision. No matter the technique, rotator cuff surgery is viewed as a highly successful operation that can provide substantial relief from shoulder pain and stiffness.

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!
