Cuff Repair

Cure for your Ailments, Care for your Health!

Proper hand-muscle movement and function are as important as proper bone health and growth. Sometimes while playing or performing any strenuous activity, bones can get fractured, especially the shoulders. At Omni, we provide comprehensive orthopaedic treatment, including shoulder cuff repair, for our patients with utmost care and compassion. Your proper treatment and general good healthcare are our topmost priorities.

How do shoulder injuries occur in children?

Soft bone structures of children and mothers can often be at risk of fracture. Tears or damage to ligaments and bone structures of the shoulder can cause the shoulder joint to become unstable, leading to pain, weakness in the arm, difficulty in moving the hand freely, and joint stiffness.

Rotator cuff tears are not common in children but it can happen pretty much in women. Therefore, we take immense care to provide accurate diagnoses of our patients of various ages so that proper treatment procedures can be followed to repair the problematic region.

How to treat shoulder cuff tears?

At Omni, our team of well-experienced, peer-reviewed doctors and surgeons specialising in child and women’s health provide the most accurate diagnosis with a customised treatment plan trying to be as minimally invasive as possible in cases of fractures, tears, and dislocation in the shoulder.

Here are some treatments usually recommended by our medical experts as part of the treatment plan:

  • Rest – If the shoulder injury is not severe, the orthopaedic doctor may recommend simple rest and protection to heal on its own.
  • Ice- In case of swelling & inflammation, applying the ice pack to the painful area may be recommended. Don’t apply ice directly on the child’s skin. Instead, wrap the ice in a piece of clothing and gently press it against the skin holding it for a few minutes at a time.
  • Medicine – Sometimes, the attending doctor may also recommend medication for treating swelling.
  • Physical therapy – Physiotherapy may be recommended, including light stretches and other recommended exercises to improve mobility and strength of the shoulder. It may be recommended as a standalone treatment or after surgery for recovery and rehabilitation.
  • Surgery – In cases of a shoulder cuff tear, cuff repair surgery may be performed by a professional surgeon specialising in surgery using our advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment for minimally invasive surgical treatment. Arthroscopic surgery may be performed, making small cuts to examine the area and operate on any tears.

  • How to prevent shoulder injuries in children?

Surgery may not be required in case of a slight tear or mild pain. Physiotherapy and rest may be enough. Surgery may be performed if deemed necessary by the consulted doctor.
