Torn Rotator Cuff   Shoulder Fix                                                





Pat's shoulder 2Remember when I crashed to the pavement in Borneo? Well I’ve lived in pain and tried to work through it but finally gave up. The photo above, left, shows what a badly torn Rotator Cuff looks like. On the right is what the fix looks like including titanium screws.

Initially Dr. Mazurek thought the damage and aging couldn’t be repaired. Once in side he decided to stretch the tear, insert screws, pull the tenden down and suture it.

Pain, you betcha! But,  in 3 months I may be almost like new again. Thanks Doc.
