Repairing Shoulder Tear of a 65-years-old Patient During COVID-19

History: A 65 years old man was unable to sleep or put any pressure on his shoulders due to severe shoulder tear.

 

Case: This man was operated by Dr. Amyn Rajani, Joint Replacement & Arthroscopy Specialist in COVID-19 times. An arthroscopic repair is essential for Supraspinatus tear. Due to having zero strength in Supraspinatis muscle and a full-thickness tear, performing double row repair is much stronger. It will also help the patient in faster recovery as compared to the traditional single-row repair procedure. Physiotherapy can begin after 3 weeks post the surgical procedure to regain complete movement of the shoulder.
