Rotator Cuff Tear

“My doctor just told me that my rotator cuff is not repairable. Is there anything I can do about it?” Yes actually there is. Besides physical therapy and injections there are surgical options available for people who have an irreparable rotator cuff tear. One option is something called a superior capsular reconstruction (SCR) which involves placement of a piece of tissue that takes the place of the rotator cuff. Another option is a type of shoulder replacement called a reverse shoulder arthroplasty.
