Rotator Cuff Surgery

What is rotator cuff?

A rotator cuff is a group of four tendons and muscles that support your arm at the shoulder joint. They allow you to move your shoulder up, down, backwards, forwards, and to rotate it and, help keep your shoulder joint in its socket.

Rotator cuff damage can occur to any or all of the rotator cuff components due to injury, chronic overuse, or gradual aging. A torn rotator cuff can be confused with other shoulder injuries such as a frozen shoulder. Your doctor will be able to offer a diagnosis. The symptoms of rotator cuff damage include:

• Shoulder pain and discomfort that can radiate down your arm.
• Weakness when you lift or move your arm from the shoulder.
• Limited shoulder movement. You may be unable to move your shoulder fully.
• Difficulty doing everyday tasks such as getting dressed or, combing your hair.
