Board approves “Optimizing the Management of Rotator Cuff Problems”
Rotator cuff disease ranks among the most prevalent of musculo-skeletal disorders. Previous studies in both cadavers and patient populations have found the prevalence of rotator cuff tears may exceed 50 percent in individuals older than age 65. Given that this age group is the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, rotator cuff disease is poised to become an even more significant problem in the future.
