This 48 year old gentleman works as a metal fabricator and presented with several months of new shoulder pain; he was finding it difficult to undertake overhead work and was limited with daily activity around the house.
MRI scans demonstrated a large rotator cuff tear with biceps tendonitis. Given the tear size and limitation in function – he proceeded with surgery.
He underwent keyhole shoulder surgery to re-anchor the biceps tendon (biceps tenodesis) and repair the rotator cuff (double row repair). An excellent repair was obtained with restoration of the anatomical footprint.
He commenced JPL rehabilitation at 2 weeks post-operatively; and an abduction sling was worn for six weeks in total. Strengthening commenced at 3 months post-surgery.
