Rotator Cuff Tears

The rotator cuff is a group of tendons in the shoulder that move and rotate the shoulder. A tear in the rotator cuff can occur from injury or from wear-and-tear over time. Tears are most common in patients in their 50s or 60s.

Rotator cuff tears do not heal on their own. For this reason, many patients choose to have arthroscopic surgery to repair the tendon. Dr. Frisella has performed more than 1,500 arthroscopic rotator cuff repair surgeries.
