Medical Tourists Rest Assured with Mtqua

Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA) has launched the very first system of assessment that judges medical centres in 10 key areas directly affecting a health tourist’s well-being. 

Rotator Cuff Surgery

A group of four tendons and muscles that holds the shoulder joint together is called rotator cuff. Damage to this can cause painful movement and stiffness. When nonsurgical measures fail, rotator cuff surgery becomes necessary.

This surgery usually involves removal of loose fragments, freeing and making room for tendons, and sewing of torn edges if any. Rotator cuff can be repaired through an arthroscopy (where repair is made by inserting an instrument and the joint is not opened). A more complex problem may warrant an open procedure where the joint needs to be opened.

After the surgery, the arm is put in a sling and pain medications are given. Physical therapy is vital for post-surgical success and recovery time depends on the extent of repair.
