Rotator Cuff Surgery

Rotator Cuff Surgery is usually performed as an arthroscopic procedure. Often this surgery is performed as a means of repairing a torn rotator cuff.

During the procedure, the patient is put in a half-sitting position, with the head supported. Most operations are performed under general anesthesia, where the patient is asleep. Sometimes a regional or local anesthetic is used to block the nerves leading to the arm. While performing the operation the surgeon reattaches the damaged tendon(s) to the upper arm.
