Do I need surgery to repair a rotator cuff tear?
Most rotator cuff tears are treated with non-surgical therapies, such as cold compression therapy and physical therapy.

However, rotator cuff repair surgery may be needed in the following cases:

  • The rotator cuff tear was caused by a sudden injury. In these cases, it's best to operate within a few weeks of the injury.
  • A complete rotator cuff tear causes severe shoulder weakness.
  • The rotator cuff has failed to improve after 3-6 months of conservative nonsurgical treatment (such as physical therapy).
  • You need full shoulder strength and function for your job or activities.

What surgery options are available for rotator cuff repair?
  • Open shoulder surgery.
  • A mini-open repair with arthroscopic assistance.
  • A fully arthroscopic surgery.

Days admitted : Usually rotator cuff repair is done as an outpatient procedure. In some cases you will need to stay 1-2 days at the hospital.

Anesthesia : General anesthesia or a nerve block.

Recovery : Recovery can take 3–6 months, with a sling being worn for the first 1–6 weeks.
