Rotator Cuff Repair (Orthopedic)
Body Area: Arms / Hands
Body Parts: Whole Arm
Symptoms: Numbness or Tingling
Evaluation is needed to determine if rehabilitation or surgery will be needed to repair a rotator cuff tear. Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive alternative to open repair or mini-open repair surgery. During surgery, the tendon will be re-attached to the ball of the shoulder joint where it was torn from.
