Shoulder pain is one of the most common and affects up to a quarter of all people in the UK. The main cause of this pain is caused by Rotator cuff injuries.


Your rotator cuff is made up of a group of four muscles (the subscapularis, supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor) and their tendons. These muscles help keep your shoulder joint stable and also help with shoulder joint movement.

Your shoulder joint (also known as your glenohumeral joint) is a ball and socket joint made up of two bones. On top of your shoulder joint is a bony process of the scapula or shoulder blade called the acromion. In the gap between your shoulder joint and the acromion is a narrow space called the subacromial space. This is where your rotator cuff tendons pass through. In this space is a fluid-filled pad called the subacromial bursa, which cushions your tendons.

What is a Rotator Cuff Injury? 

Rotator Cuff Injury is a general term to describe inflammation (soreness and swelling) or damage to one or more of the muscles, tendons or bursa that make up your rotator cuff. 

What is the treatment process?

At Kingsbridge Private Hospital our consultants will help assess your injury and advise if physiotherapy or joint injections can be used to treat your injury. In some cases surgery may be the most effective treatment to help relieve your pain and our consultants will be able to advise you on the types of surgery that would best suit your conditions. 
 

Depending on your injury our surgeons are able to offer different types of surgery
to suit you needs:


Open surgery 

The surgeon makes a cut in the skin over your shoulder and repairs your injury through the cut. 

Shoulder arthroscopy

keyhole surgery that can be used to look inside and treat your shoulder joint. This is usually done under general anaesthesia but can also be done under local anaesthesia usually with sedation. Sedation in local anaesthesia blocks pain from your shoulder area and you will stay awake during the operation. 

Mini-open surgery

A combination of arthroscopy and repair through a small cut that is usually 3 to 5cm long. 

Our expert surgeons will be able to give you advice on which type of surgery you will need for your condition when you attend for an appointment.

"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
"EXCELLENT - Had surgery today under the very caring Dr Stewart and her team. I cannot thank her enough for all she’s done for me over the past few months. Everything was explained to me in detail and all my care was considerate, professional and compassionate. Everyone I’ve met today has been beyond kind from Will the Anaesthetist, the Nurses and theatre staff, the catering staff - there has been no exception. Thank you all for taking care of me so well today - look forward to getting home tomorrow x" Mrs McAleavey, Kingsbridge Patient
