Rotator Cuff Surgery at Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC)

Struggling with shoulder pain? Is it hard to reach up high or throw a ball without discomfort? You might have a rotator cuff injury. This common problem involves the muscles and tendons around your shoulder joint – think of it as the part that helps you move your arm in every direction. At Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC), we partner with your doctor to help you get back to swinging, lifting, and embracing life without shoulder pain.

Understanding Rotator Cuff and the Procedure

Understanding Rotator Cuff and the Procedure


The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that provide strength and stability to the shoulder joint. Injury or wear can lead to tendon tears, resulting in pain and limited movement.


Rotator cuff surgery aims to repair the torn tendons, reattaching them to the bone, which can relieve pain and restore full range of motion to the shoulder.


Performed as an outpatient surgery, patients can return home the same day, with post-operative care focused on pain management and gradual rehabilitation to regain strength and function.


Preparing for Success


In Your Doctor's Care at RASC


Your Path to Recovery

Once we schedule your surgery, you'll have a detailed discussion with your doctor, who will then collaborate with us for your procedure. We'll make sure you understand the prep, including any fasting and medication changes. Also, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight after the procedure

On the day of your surgery, your comfort is our priority. You'll receive anesthesia and other pain management intervention. Your doctor will perform the surgery, assisted by our specialized RASC team using the latest medical equipment. The surgery typically takes a couple of hours, and you'll be resting in the comfort of your own home the very same day.

Post-surgery, you'll likely wear a sling to keep your shoulder still and protected. We'll guide you through your recovery process with pain management and care instructions for when you're back home. Follow-up care, including physical therapy to regain strength and flexibility, will be key to a full recovery. Your doctor will oversee your progress, with our support at RASC, every step of the way.
