The rotator cuff is a collection of muscles and tendons located near the shoulder that assist with fluid arm movement. The tendons comprising the rotator cuff may be torn during injury (i.e. falling on your arm, improperly lifting heavy objects) or through gradual wear and typically result in pain and weakness of the arm.
A recently developed method of treating rotator cuff tears is called an arthroscopic cuff tear repair. The procedure involves creating a few very small incisions through which an arthroscope (small camera) is placed and instruments are used to ameliorate the tear. The procedure is far less invasive than alternative procedures and has fewer potential complications.
