Rotator Cuff Tears

A rotator cuff tear is a common source of disability among active and inactive adults alike. In most cases, tears occur in the supraspinatus muscle, but other parts of the cuff may be involved. The rotator cuff is the network of four muscles and several tendons that form a covering around the top of the upper arm bone. Depending on the extent of the damage, the rotator cuff may require surgery to regain full function of the joint.

Shoulder Replacement

While shoulder replacement is less common than knee or hip replacement, its effectiveness is similar. More than 50,000 people have shoulder replacement surgery each year, according to AAOS, which removes and replaces the damaged portions of the joint. The surgery can either replace just the head of the humerus bone or replace both ball and socket of the joint.
