Rotator Cuff Repair Surgeon

Times When Surgery is Necessary

If you have a torn or injured rotator cuff, we will first proceed with nonsurgical methods. Nonetheless, there are times when surgery is necessary, as the conservative treatment fails to show effective results.

One of the main signs that you need surgery is continued pain. The provider might also suggest surgical treatment if you lead an active lifestyle and use your arms for sports or overhead work.

Other than this, you might need surgery if your symptoms have lasted 6 to 12 months, you have a large tear, your shoulder has a significant loss of function and strength, and if a recent injury was responsible for the tear. Our rotator cuff surgeon in Houston is prepared to provide adequate treatment to their patients!

What Happens During Rotator Cuff Surgery

Once you trust our rotator cuff surgeon in Houston, rest assured that they will ensure your comfort and that your needs are the priority. We will use general anesthesia or local anesthesia to ensure your shoulder is numb. After that, we will clean the skin on your surgical site and clean it with an antiseptic solution.

Next, depending on the type of surgery, we make an incision on the affected area, fix or replace the injured muscles and tendons, remove any bone spurs, close the incision using stitches or surgical staples, and then apply a dressing or a sterile bandage. Our surgeon will take a cautious approach and perform precise procedures so that you receive effective results.

Patient Reviews

If this surgery is a little frightening, I understand. I interviewed doctors until I was satisfied that the one I chose was right for me. The pain and restriction of movement in my left shoulder was debilitating. Dr. Michael Cusick is totally committed to his trade. Complete total reverse shoulder replacement.

Kyle Powell

Don't get me wrong there was hiccups and waiting to have surgery seemed like forever but Dr. Cusick, his office staff and the hospital staff especially has been amazing. They went above and beyond to get my surgery approved so we wouldn't have to put it off longer. Dr. Cusick keeps a positive outlook even at times...
