Rotator cuff tear – our treatment

A rotator cuff tear is a shoulder injury caused either by wear (degenerative tear) or by an accident. In both cases, it is important that you consult a specialist as soon as possible to avoid serious consequences, such as long-term impairments in the mobility of your shoulder or shoulder arthritis. The treatment of your rotator cuff tear depends on various factors. If the damage is minor, conservative measures such as painkillers or physiotherapy can achieve good results in terms of pain reduction and improved mobility. However, a rotator cuff tear cannot be healed this way but requires an operation. Our experienced experts perform surgery minimally invasively whenever possible, in order to enable you to recover quickly. Especially if you are active in sports and place high demands on the function of your shoulder joint, surgery for your rotator cuff tear is unavoidable.
