In the past, serious shoulder injuries, like rotator cuff tears, were treated with open surgeries that required large incisions.
Now, shoulder surgery specialists are using advances in arthroscopic shoulder surgery to treat the same conditions with much less invasive techniques. Arthroscopic shoulder surgery allows physicians to conduct orthopaedic repairs using a through several small incisions. These smaller incisions mean shorter and less painful recoveries for patients – and a quicker return to activity.
