Subscapularis Repair Overview
The subscapularis is the most powerful muscle in the rotator cuff and is responsible for helping to internally rotate the arm, (palm facing back, behind the body). If the subscapularis muscle is torn from the rotator cuff, subscapularis repair is vitally important to restore the anatomy of the shoulder and to achieve the best functional outcome possible.
Subscapularis repair can be difficult to perform, due to the small space in which it is contained. For that reason, it is important to consult with Dr. Nikhil Verma, orthopedic shoulder surgeon, who has experience with successful subscapularis repair. He can take a systematic approach and use an arthroscopic surgical technique to perform the subscapularis repair with proven patient outcomes.
