VIDEO: Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
duration: 00:00
The rotator cuff is a group of tendons that connects the four muscles of the upper shoulder to the bones. The strength of the cuff allows the muscles to lift and rotate the humerus (the bone of the upper arm) and to give the shoulder joint its large range of motion. When the tendons or muscles of the rotator cuff tear or are significantly strained, the patient is no longer able to lift or rotate his or her arm with the same range of motion or strength as before the injury or has significant pain associated with shoulder motion. Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a minimally invasive way to treat the injury.
