Rotator Cuff Repair (Arthroscopic)

Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a type of shoulder surgery used to repair a tear of the rotator cuff in your shoulder. Shoulder arthroscopy uses small incisions and special equipment to view and repair an injury, and is considered less-invasive than traditional open surgery.  The rotator cuff is group of muscles and tendons that holds the head of the humerus in the shoulder socket.
