Most of the same type of repair and strength can be imparted onto the tissues to allow normal healing. One approach that has gained popularity over the past decade or so is arthroscopic repair of the rotator cuff muscles. This involves small poke holes around the shoulder where a camera is inserted into the shoulder, the tear identified, and then through various techniques, the rotator cuff muscle is repaired down to the bone. The benefit of an all arthroscopic repair is that the recovery time is typically less because the incisions are smaller and there’s less damage to the normal tissue of the shoulder.
