  • What is Rotator Cuff Repair?

    Rotator cuff surgery is usually performed in patients with a torn rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint that keeps the upper arm firmly in the shoulder joint socket. The surgery can be performed traditionally (with an open incision) or minimally invasively (arthroscopically).

    Rotator cuff injuries are very common, mostly in older people or people who frequently perform overhead motions, like painters, carpenters, etc. Normally, rotator cuff injuries happen over time and can be treated conservatively if caught in time. However, severe tears or tears that occur due to a single trauma are normally treated surgically.

    Diagnosing Rotator Cuff Injuries

    Before treatment of rotator cudd injuries doctor usually suggests a few diagnostic tests to understand the severity of the condition. Some of the common diagnostic tests are as follows: 

    • X-rays: This test is usually performed to visualize bone abnormalities such as bone spurs, joint dislocation, and arthritis, helping identify the underlying source of pain.
    • Ultrasound: This imaging technique enables visualization of soft tissues like muscles and tendons, allowing the surgeon to assess for tears, sprains, or other abnormalities.
    • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI employs radio waves to produce detailed images of the shoulder’s internal structures, aiding in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

    Once the diagnosis is confirmed, the surgeon discusses the appropriate treatment options with the patient. Mild to moderate tears are typically managed conservatively through approaches such as medications, steroid injections, and physical therapy. However, in cases of severe rotator cuff tears, surgery is often recommended.

    How to prepare for rotator cuff surgery?

    Before the rotator cuff repair surgery, you should follow the given preparatory steps to ensure treatment success and comfort during the treatment journey:

    • Discuss your health condition with your surgery provider. Tell them about all medicines, supplements, or medical herbs you are currently taking. If you are taking any blood thinners or medicines that may cause anesthesia-related complications, you may need to stop them before the surgery.
    • If you have any pre-existing conditions like diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, etc., you may need approval from your regular care provider before getting the surgery.
    • Stop tobacco and alcohol consumption, especially smoking, a few days before the surgery as they can interfere with the patient’s healing ability.
    • If you have a fever, cold, or other infection before the surgery, inform your surgery provider, so they can prepare accordingly.
    • Prepare an overnight bag as you may be hospitalized for 1-2 days after the surgery. Do not eat anything after midnight on the day of the surgery, especially if your surgery is to be performed under general anesthesia.

The patient is then administered general anesthesia, which induces sleep, or regional anesthesia to numb the shoulder area. During the surgery, small incisions are made, and an arthroscope is used to visualize the tear and assess its extent. The damaged tissue is then repaired using sutures or fixation devices. Post-surgery care, rehabilitation, and physical therapy are crucial for a successful recovery.
