Rotator Cuff Repair

One of the most important parts of the shoulder, the rotator cuff holds the shoulder in place. If the rotator cuff is injured, such as a tear, it may need to be repaired with surgery. Athletes and construction workers often have rotator cuff injuries due to repetitive movement and overuse of the shoulder.
