Rotator Cuff

I had a tear in my rotator cuff last December. My doctor repaired it with a mini-open repair method, where he used an arthroscope for half and then cut me open for the rest. From what I'm told, it cut my recovery time significantly. I now have full range of motion and strength. I'm glad I did it. The worst part was the sling-- I had to wear one for two and a half weeks and it drove me batty.
