LOWER TRAPEZIUS TRANSFERS

Lower trapezius tendon transfer is indicated for patients with a massive rotator cuff tear and loss of external rotation strength of their arm. Patients are unable to control their arm in the horizontal plane and cannot maintain their arm in the position of a throwing motion. On some occasions, patients can lift their arm above their head but can’t rotate it in space.

WHAT PATIENTS SAY

“Dr. Bishai is wonderful! Can't praise him enough. Had both shoulders done. He explained everything to me. Highly recommend him!!!”
