Rotator Cuff Repair

Raleigh-Durham’s Best Choice for Rotator Cuff Repair

Many think that those in need of rotator cuff repair are typically athletes who engage in years of recurring overhead motions like those involved in tennis, rowing, baseball or other repetitive action sports.

While those participants are typically more at risk, the truth is that anyone can suffer a rotator muscle tear as a result of a singular traumatic shoulder event, or in relation to a shoulder fracture or dislocation. Whether you’re a weekend warrior with a recent injury, or simply someone who’s endured months of recurring shoulder pain, you owe it to yourself to come see the rotator cuff repair specialists at the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic.

Renowned rotator cuff tear surgeons Dr. Louis C. Almekinders  and Dr. Lee H. Diehl specialize in the diagnosis, analysis, and treatment of rotator cuff injuries as a result of repetitive motions or singular events. Our minimally-invasive approach offers a real solution for those seeking relief and repair from months or even years of chronic shoulder pain.

Dr. Almekinders and Dr. Diehl will take the time to meet with you and get your overall medical history, as well as discuss your symptoms and other treatments you may have had. From there, all surgical and non-surgical options will be presented to allow you to make an informed decision.
