Technique for Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair


Modern arthroscopic tools and techniques have allowed surgeons to operate on a wide variety of injuries using procedures less invasive than traditional open methods. For shoulder surgery in general,and rotator cuff repairs specifically, methods now yield a similar footprint as open procedures with several advantages, including reduced tissue trauma, postoperative pain, swelling, and concern aboutthe deltoid attachment, which should lead to good outcomes.
