Cuff repair using arthroscopy

We can reduce this disability using arthroscopic surgery.

If the wear in your shoulder is more severe, the cuff's membrane is perforated (partial or complete rotator cuff rupture, also known as a transfixing rupture), and the clinical picture of pain and weakness when elevating the arm justifies it, we recommend cuff repair.

This surgery consists in reattaching the rotator cuff's membrane to the head of the humerus, in addition to performing arthroscopic acromioplasty.

Other associated lesions are often found in the shoulder at the same time. The presence of inflammation located in the articulation at the end of the clavicle (synovitis and acromioclavicular arthrosis) can require a resection of the end of the clavicle, also known as acromioclavicular resection arthroplasty, through arthroscopy.

Problems associated, associated with the long head of the biceps are also treatable using arthroscopy, either by repairing its origin (labrum repair or SLAP) or by reattaching it to another tendon or to the bone (tenodesis of the long head of the biceps).
