Anyone who has injured a shoulder’s rotator cuff has a deep appreciation for the role this group of muscles and tendons plays in a healthy lifestyle. A painful rotator cuff makes it difficult to reach up into a cabinet for something, or down to pick up a child, or around to swing a baseball bat.

Yale Medicine Orthopedics & Rehabilitation offers comprehensive and skilled care for rotator cuff injuries. Our surgeons provide nonoperative care, as well as tall of the latest surgeries, including arthroscopic and minimally invasive procedures, open procedures and  revision surgery.
