This repair is done through an arthroscopy (key hole surgery). The technique permits speedy recovery and returning to their demanding work faster.
§ Rotator cuff (shoulder muscle) tear seen more commonly in 50-60 years age group, results in unbearable pain and inability to lift arm. The Double Row Repair technique with swivelock anchors, increases the area of contact of the torn rotator cuff (shoulder muscle) at the bone insertion site.
