  • Experience. Mayo Clinic doctors treat thousands of people with rotator cuff injuries each year and have extensive experience performing both routine and complex shoulder surgery procedures.
  • Innovative methods. Mayo Clinic offers some treatment options for shoulder injuries and conditions that are available at only a few medical centers in the country. Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeons perform hundreds of reverse shoulder replacements every year.
  • New advances. Rotator cuff specialists collaborate with scientists in Mayo Clinic's laboratories for biomechanics and motion analysis to develop new treatment techniques to improve rotator cuff healing, rehabilitation and outcomes. Doctors and therapists with the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center have devised exercise programs to help prevent rotator cuff injury in high-risk individuals.
  • Minimally invasive approach. Mayo Clinic doctors use minimally invasive techniques for many rotator cuff surgeries, with smaller incisions, less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery than traditional open surgery.
  • Coordinated care. A team of experts in orthopedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, sports medicine, and other areas works together to diagnose your problem and recommend the most appropriate treatment. Consultations with doctors, testing and treatment can usually be done in a single visit.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is ranked among the Best Hospitals for orthopedics and for rehabilitation by U.S. News & World Report.
