Rotator Cuff Tears

Rotator cuff tears are a common shoulder problem.

When a rotator cuff tear causes interference with activities of daily living and work, patients will often seek surgical intervention.

Depending on the nature of the rotator cuff injury, it may be treated with either open or arthroscopic surgery, or a combination of both.

Management often involves a period of reduced activity following surgery and includes rehabilitation with the physiotherapist.
