WHAT ARE MY TREATMENT OPTIONS?
Partial tears may be treated with nonsurgical treatment options. Your treatment plan will help decrease your symptoms and increase your shoulder function. Any of the following may be included in your customized plan:
- Anti-inflammatory and pain medications
- Corticosteroid injection
- Immobilization in a sling
- Physical therapy
Surgery may be recommended if you have a complete tear. During a minimally invasive arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, our Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon attaches torn tendons to their normal insertion points on your shoulder.
We have helped thousands of patients with rotator cuff tears return to an active and healthy life using the latest advancements in non-surgical and surgical procedures.
