Rotator cuff repair information and locations

A Rotator cuff Repair consists on the repair of the damaged tendons that rotate your shoulder. Injuries, and the wear and tear from regular activities are the most common reasons that candidates for this procedure experience.
Depending on the patient, doctors may choose to perform an open surgery on the shoulder or they may decide to perform an arthroscopy, which is generally more common. The former may lead to an overnight stay at the hospital, while the latter may allow the patient to return home on the same day of operation (same day procedure). A combination of both procedures may be used; this is called a mini-open surgery that could also need an overnight stay. All can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
