Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair has many advantages over «open» rotator cuff surgery including less post-operative pain and morbidity. Usually only 3 or 4 tiny puncture wounds measuring about one cm each are required, thus minimizing scarring. The advantages of keyhole surgery for rotator cuff repair make it an attractive option compared to traditional open surgery. Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair can often be performed as a day case obviating the need to stay over-night in hospital.
