Thank you SurgeryPrice! You saved me a whole bunch of money. At first I was considering having my tummy tuck at one of the clinics in London. I am so happy I changed my mind and went abroad instead. I got tummy tuck and breast lift for the same price I was planning to pay in London for tummy tuck only! I am very grateful for all the help you gave me :) Karin, London
Rotator Cuff Treatment Prices
Rotator cuff refers to muscles and tendons which connect upper arm with shoulder blade. The function of this structure is to stabilize the shoulder joint as well as to increase the range of motion. Rotator cuff might be damaged because of trauma, repetitive movements and other reasons causing inflammation of the structure. In order to restore the function of shoulder an arthroscopic surgery might be performed.
- Who qualifies for rotator cuff?
- A person who suffers from chronic pain – if pain troubles you more than 6 months;
- Loss of function
- A patient lives an active life or participates in sports
- A large tendon tear is present (3 cm)
- A tear was caused due to recent injury.
- Minimal postoperative pain
- Short duration in hospital after the surgery
- No stitches
- Minimal traumatic effect on surrounding tissues
- Short recovery period.
- General complications associated with surgery – bleeding, side effects or allergies to anesthetics
- Nerve injury – there is a higher possibility of axillar nerve injury while other nerve structures are rarely interfered
- Tendon re-tear
- A study by David Altchek M.D and his colleagues involved 193 patients who had arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. After a year following the procedure an ultrasound showed that 64.3 % had their rotator cuff totally healed. There was seen an increase in patients with healed rotator cuff after two and five years – respectively 74.5 % and 81.2 %.
- Besides that, the same study showed long-lasting results of restored shoulder function. Alongside ultrasound a range of motion and manual muscle testing (so called American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon (ASE) score) was performed. ASES scores, which range from 0 to 100, improved from 52.6 before the surgery to 92.6 after five years.
- Surgery time:
- The arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery takes from 30 minutes to several hours.
- Recovery after rotator cuff:
- Following the rotator cuff surgery affected arm will be placed in a sling for about 3-4 weeks. During this time a physical therapy is essential. A physician will exercise your arm in a way to avoid active contraction of muscles. The latter might cause disturbances in healing of muscles and tendons which results in pain or stiffness of shoulder joint. After a sling is removed you will be encouraged to lift your arm and perform strengthening exercises. Full activity of a shoulder will be regained after 6 months but in some cases this time might be expanded. It mostly depends on the severity of shoulder damage prior to a surgery and a commitment to physical therapy.
