Detailed Information
Rotator CuffWhat is Rotator Cuff Surgery?

The rotating cuff combines muscles and tendons, which connect the upper arm, the humerus, to the shoulder blades. For a torn rotator cuff, rotator cuff surgery is a prevalent procedure. The upper arm bone is also held in your shoulder socket by the rotator cuff. The supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis are the four rotator cuff muscles. A tendon connects each muscle to the arm bone. The surgery used in one of these tendons to repair the tear is a rotator cuff repair.

Treatment for Rotator Cuff Surgery

Either general or regional anesthesia will be given to the patient. Usually a rotator cuff repair is performed either with an arthroscopy or as an open, large incision or very tiny incision surgery. By repairing your rotator cuff with an arthroscopy, the surgeon will place the tiny camera in one hole and then create one to three extra tiny incisions for other tools. The surgeon will re-attach your tendon to your bone using these instruments. The surgeon attaches it with sutures once the tendon is in the correct location. Small rivets called suture anchors often are used by surgeons. These rivets can be generated from metal or a dissolving material. There will be no removal of any sort of rivet. The rivets are attached to the sutures, which attach the tendon to the torn bone. If the rotary cuff tear is bigger, a traditional procedure may be needed to cure it. Instead of an arthroscopic method, this implies an open or larger incision. If the doctor wants to remove a calcium deposit or a spur bone, open surgery, mini-open surgery, or arthroscopy may be essential. A bone spur is a bony growth which can cause pain on adjacent ligaments, nerves or tendons. The incisions will be closed by stitches.
