Rotator Cuff Tear Repair Surgery in the Palo Alto Area
Are you in need of seeking rotator cuff tear repair and looking for an orthopedic surgeon in the Palo Alto area? When the rotator cuff tears, surgery is usually required to repair the damage. A procedure to re-attach the tendon where it has torn, at the head of the humerus, is performed in most cases. Another procedure, known as debridement, is used to treat minor to moderate rotator cuff tears. Dr. Nic Gay or Dr. Masi Reynolds will trim and smooth the affected area to repair damage.
If you have suffered a complete tear of the rotator cuff, stitching the tendon where it was naturally attached is an effective treatment option. In all cases, the team at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics will carry out a clinical examination to determine the nature and severity of your shoulder injury before recommending repair options.

We aim to repair the damage to the tendon using the most conservative approach possible.
