Pre-op, Post-op, and Recovery information.

Superior capsule reconstruction is a treatment option that may restore and rebalance the force couples necessary for dynamic shoulder function.


Massive, irreparable rotator cuff tears are increasingly common and difficult to manage. Superior capsule reconstruction is a surgical treatment option that helps restore the native biomechanics of the glenohumeral joint by creating a passive restraint to superior subluxation. Partial rotator cuff repair in patients with a massive tear also has been shown to recreate shoulder kinematics and can be performed in combination with superior capsule reconstruction.
