Your treatment options for a rotator cuff tear will depend on several factors, including the cause and type of tear, your age, what types of activity you use your shoulder for, and what your goals are for future function. Your doctor may recommend surgery to repair your rotator cuff tear if:

  • Your shoulder pain continues despite nonsurgical treatments
  • You have a complete tear (not a partial tear)
  • Your job requires overhead activity such as lifting or reaching
  • You are an athlete who wants to return to a high level of performance

Our goal is to alleviate your shoulder pain and restore your shoulder strength and range of motion, so you can get back to the activities and sports you enjoy.
