Thank You, Dr. Jeong

Fully Torn Rotator Cuff

A Fully Torn Rotator Cuff may occur as a result of impingement syndrome, where the acromion bone rubs against the rotator cuff tendons. Symptoms of a torn rotator cuff include pain, weakness, and loss of motion in the shoulder. The Sports Medicine and Shoulder experts at Tucson Orthopaedic Institute can diagnose and treat fully torn rotator cuff injuries. Watch the shoulder surgery animation below to learn how this is repaired.
