Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a procedure for fixing a rotator cuff tear, from shaving bone spurs or repairing torn tendons and muscles in the shoulder. If the patient’s injury extends beyond the rotator cuff, then the surgeon can perform modified rotator cuff surgery with bicep repair to correct the injury.
The rotator cuff comprises a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. It is responsible for supporting the shoulder joint and keeping the head of the arm within the joint socket. Rotator cuff surgeries are performed for rotator cuff injuries. Rotator cuff damage is very common in people who have jobs that require repeated overhead motions or in athletes due to sudden jerking motions.
