Michael Caughey - Shoulder, Hip & Knee Orthopaedic Surgeon
Rotator Cuff Repair
Several small incisions (cuts) are made in the shoulder through which is inserted a small telescopic instrument with a tiny camera attached (arthroscope). The surgeon is then able to remove any bony spurs or inflamed tissue and mend torn tendons of the rotator cuff group.
For more detail we recommend the AAOS rotator cuff website information.
