What are the benefits of arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery?

There are two major benefits of arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery.

The main benefit of rotator cuff surgery in general is to eliminate pain from a partial or total rotator cuff tear, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic SurgeonsOff Site Icon (AAOS).

The benefit of having this surgery done arthroscopically is that it is minimally invasive and has a quick recovery time, according to the AAOS.

The arthroscope allows the surgeon to make very small cuts rather than a large incision for open surgery, according to the AAOS. Arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery is usually an outpatient procedure.
