If you have a torn rotator cuff, your doctor may recommend arthroscopic surgery to fix the tear. During an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, your surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into your shoulder joint. The camera displays pictures on a television screen, and your surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments.
Arthroscopic repair is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and is the least invasive method used to repair a torn rotator cuff.
There are several different arthroscopic techniques that can be used to repair a torn rotator cuff. This video demonstrates the steps involved in one type of arthroscopic repair.
I just want to send my sincere thanks to Dr. Gasparine. You were right! My knees and legs are about 99% pain free! I had no problems going up and down my stairs at all last night. I can hardly believe that the pain in my legs from my hips to my toes were caused by my knees. I am so excited to feel so good after all these months! I thought I was doomed to be miserable forever.
Again, Thank you!
