Offering the Most Advanced Rotator Cuff Surgery in the Region
Throughout the state, EmergeOrtho’s physicians have solidified a reputation for being leaders in minimally invasive surgical techniques, a priority for patients seeking rotator cuff repair. This, coupled with decades of ceaseless dedication, have enabled us to be the provider of choice for thousands of area residents.
Rotator cuff surgery is typically performed to repair a torn tendon in the shoulder. It can be performed traditionally (also known as an open procedure), or it can be performed using a minimally invasive arthroscopic procedure. The arthroscopic technique utilizes small, buttonhole incisions to repair the site of injury.
The rotator cuff is a group of four tendons that help stabilize the shoulder. While EmergeOrtho physicians always evaluate nonsurgical options first, a rotator cuff disorder can become severe if nonsurgical treatment has failed to improve movement and strength.
Surgery of the rotator cuff can involve the following:
Debridement – This is the removal of loose fragments of tendon, bursa, and other debris in the shoulder.
Bone shaving – To stop the cuff from being pinched or irritated, the rotator cuff tendon may require more room. Bone may need to be shaved down, and bone spurs may need to be removed from the shoulder blade in order to provide the room needed.
