A rotator cuff tear can be extremely debilitating, especially when the strength and range-of-motion in your shoulder are drastically reduced. Everyday activities like washing your hair or reaching for a book on a shelf can become painful, which reduces your ability to function normally on a daily basis. If you are suffering from shoulder pain that could potentially be the result of a rotator cuff tear, the medical staff at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group can help.
Daniel Murphy, M.D., our orthopaedic surgeon who is a team physician for the New York Yankees, and Arnold Ramirez, M.D., a sports medicine doctor and a team physician for USF athletics, can evaluate your condition and determine if rotator cuff surgery is necessary, or if you could benefit from any of the following conservative shoulder treatment approaches:
- Physical therapy
- Ultrasound therapy
- Cortisone injections
- Hyaluronic acid injections
- Pharmacological treatments
- And more
In the event that rotator cuff tear surgery does offer you the best chance for pain relief and increased mobility, our staff will guide you through each step of the surgical process. We will inform you about the procedure and its risks and benefits, in addition to helping you prepare for your shoulder surgery. We also offer post-surgical rehabilitation so that you can start feeling your best again as quickly as possible.
