Treatments for Rotator Cuff Injuries
When the pain from your rotator cuff won’t go away, you need treatment from the orthopedic specialists at Spectrum Health.
We’re known for our success in repairing shoulder problems. Our orthopedic surgeons use the latest treatment options, including minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques and shoulder joint replacement surgery when needed. We can help relieve your pain and restore your normal shoulder function.
Treatments We Provide
In this minimally invasive procedure, the surgeon uses a scope to remove the damaged portion. The tendon is then stitched and anchored back to the arm bone. Also called "keyhole" surgery due to the small incision, this offers you a faster recovery.
Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Shoulder joint replacement surgery can improve your quality of life and restore use of your arm and shoulder. Seeing an orthopedic expert early may help you regain strength and comfort without shoulder replacement.
To stabilize your joint, your doctor may require you to use a splint, sling or brace. This helps keep it still so it can heal, and limits the pain that comes with moving.
Often physical therapy is part of your post-surgery recovery plan. However, physical therapy is used to prevent and relieve pain from many conditions, whether neurological or sports-related. Work with our physical therapists to restore strength and your healthy lifestyle.
