Rotator Cuff Orthopedic Surgery
The muscles and tendons surrounding your shoulder joint are known as the rotator cuff. It’s responsible for securing the ball of the joint into the socket, which essentially means it’s responsible for keeping your arm connected to your body. This is more impressive when you consider the rotator cuff must allow your arm a wide range of motion for a variety of activities.
Different injuries can damage the muscles or tendons in the rotator cuff. This causes pain, limits mobility, and can lead to other issues like shoulder dislocation. It’s important to seek medical treatment when suffering from a rotator cuff injury for optimal recovery.

What Causes Rotator Cuff Injuries?
Rotator cuff injuries have several causes. They can be caused by impact, overuse, old age, and genetic predisposition to rotator cuff injuries. An occasional sore shoulder is a normal part of life, so you should learn how to tell the difference between this and a rotator cuff injury.
If you observe any of the following symptoms, you may need medical assistance for a rotator cuff injury:
- A long-lasting, dull ache in the shoulder
- Difficulty raising your arm over your head or reaching behind your back
- Weakness in the arm
- Difficulty sleeping, especially on your side
How Are Rotator Cuff Injuries Treated?
Minor rotator cuff injuries can benefit from nonsurgical methods like physical therapy and medication. Rotator cuff tears are more serious and may require surgical intervention. Surgery is one of the last options for treatment anybody wants because it can be invasive and requires a lot of time for treatment. Fortunately, many people with rotator cuff tears can benefit from arthroscopy, which is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny incisions and small, precise surgical tools.
Other potential surgical options for rotator cuff tears include:
- Total joint replacement surgery
- Open tendon repair
- Tendon transfer
