Affordable Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery in Mumbai

Rotator cuff pain may feel like regular shoulder joint pain but can cause irreversible damage to the shoulder ligaments. Get a detailed diagnosis and undergo suitable treatment for shoulder pain and rotator cuff repair in Mumbai.

What is Rotator Cuff Repair?

Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is a procedure for fixing a rotator cuff tear, from shaving bone spurs or repairing torn tendons and muscles in the shoulder. If the patient’s injury extends beyond the rotator cuff, then the surgeon can perform modified rotator cuff surgery with bicep repair to correct the injury.

The rotator cuff comprises a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. It is responsible for supporting the shoulder joint and keeping the head of the arm within the joint socket. Rotator cuff surgeries are performed for rotator cuff injuries. Rotator cuff damage is very common in people who have jobs that require repeated overhead motions or in athletes due to sudden jerking motions.

Treatment

Diagnosis of Rotator cuff injuries

Rotator cuff injuries are easy to diagnose via a physical exam. First, the doctor tests the strength in the shoulder and arm muscles to assess the extent of the damage before performing other diagnostic tests. Other diagnostic tests that are performed for rotator cuff injury diagnosis are:

  • X-ray: A tear in the rotator cuff doesn’t appear on an X-ray, but the accompanying bone spurs and arthritic changes can be easily identified in an X-ray.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasounds are used to visualize soft tissues such as muscles and tendons. It also helps assess the rotator cuff in motion. It also helps in the comparison of healthy and unhealthy shoulder joints.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): MRIs help visualize and diagnose soft tissue injuries with great detail.

Rotator Cuff Repair Surgery

For minor injuries, medical management is possible via rest, ice and physical therapy, but for rotator cuff tear repair, the only appropriate treatment is via Arthroscopic Tendon Repair. During the surgery, the surgeon inserts an arthroscope and surgical instruments to reattach the tears via small incisions. Patients will need a little physical therapy for torn rotator cuff after surgery.

Do’s and Don’ts after shoulder repair surgery.

After the surgery, you need to take good care of your shoulder to ensure proper healing. Tips for faster recovery after rotator cuff repair are:

  • Use a sling for 4-6 weeks after the surgery.
  • Keep your shoulder immobile. Do not perform any reaching, lifting, pushing, or pulling motions during the first 5-6 weeks after the operation.
  • If it feels too uncomfortable, you can remove the sling for a little while several times a day to straighten your elbow.
  • Keep up with your physiotherapy exercises and post-operative medication.
  • Eat light meals, especially on the day before the surgery.
  • Apply an ice-pack to the surgical site for 48-72 hours after the surgery two to three times a day.
  • Keep your dressing for the recommended amount of time. Make sure to follow up with your surgeon.
  • If there is any redness, inflammation, swelling, or bleeding from the incision site, then immediately contact your doctor.

How is arthroscopic rotator cuff operation performed?

The surgery is performed in the following steps:

  • Depending on several factors, such as the severity of the symptoms, the patient’s condition, the surgeon’s preference, etc., the surgery may be performed under general or local anaesthesia.
  • The surgeon creates a couple of tiny incisions. An arthroscope is inserted through the first incision through which the surgeon inspects all the rotator cuff tissues and damage to the tissue.
  • Through the second incision, the surgeon inserts operative instruments to bring the tendons’ edges together and attach them together using small rivets or sutures called anchors to attach the tendons to the bone.
  • The rotator cuff repair anchors are made of either metal or plastic and do not need to be removed after the surgery.
