I always knew that the rotator cuff was a marvel of human anatomy providing critical stabilizing support to the shoulder joint.
This was my third experience (in the last 2 years) with surgery at HSS. The first was with Dr. Michael M. Alexiades for a labral tear in my left shoulder...
As an active 49 year old who plays sports and spends 5-6 days a week in the gym, I was concerned when I tore my rotator cuff in August..
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to several amazing doctors and the dedicated staff of Hospital for Special Surgery.
One month and 3 days ago I underwent rotator cuff repair, subacromial decompression and an acromioclavicular joint resection...
I had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and a torn bicep tendon of my right shoulder in late September 2015.
The experience was incredibly good! Everybody that I met going through this experience where very helpful
