What is a rotator cuff? How do you repair it?

Share this post

If you're having shoulder pain, it is often due to an injury of the rotator cuff tendons that drive the arm up-and-down and make your arm work. When the tendons are torn, they pull away from the bone. At The Stone Clinic in San Francisco, Dr. Kevin Stone is able to fix this injury by pulling the tendons back and anchor them into place. It is done as an arthroscopic outpatient procedure. It's best to repair this injury as early as you can to save yourself from developing arthritis. Set up a complimentary phone consultation to find out if this procedure will work for you.
