Rotator Cuff Surgery Offered for Patients in Reno, NVRotator Cuff Surgery Reno NV

Rotator cuff surgery is a type of procedure used to relieve pressure on the pinched nerve in the torn rotator cuff. It involves removing the fragments of damaged tendon and possibly shaving bone from the shoulder blade to make more room for the shoulder to rotate without irritation. For patients recommended for rotator cuff surgery, Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic in Reno, Nevada, has a team of orthopedic surgeons who are experienced in treating this condition.

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we believe each patient should be fully informed of the available treatment options and what each treatment entails. For that reason, when you schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic surgeons at our Reno clinic to discuss rotator cuff surgery, we will explain to you exactly what happens during the procedure, so you can be confident about the treatment option you choose. Surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff typically entails the following steps:

  1. An incision is made in the shoulder or upper back to access the torn rotator cuff.
  2. The surgeon will remove the damaged pieces of tendon and bursa and any other torn fragments from the rotator cuff injury. These fragments can compress nearby nerves and also make movement in the shoulder difficult and painful.
  3. Flexibility is then restored to the rotator cuff by shaving down the shoulder blade to allow the tendon on the rotator cuff to have more room to move and rotate.
  4. Once the tendon has more room to move, the surgeon will then add stability to the rotator cuff by attaching the tendon to the humerus (the upper bone of the arm).

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"
