Consider surgery: If you have a partial rotator cuff tear as documented by an MRI scan, and you have had thorough conservative care (physical therapy, rest, nsaid's, and a cortisone injection), you may to consider surgery to address your ongoing pain. Arthroscopic shoulder surgery should be able to take care of the problem for you. Discuss with your orthopaedic surgeon re your best choice.

Might Need Another: It's controversial, but some mds might give a second cortisone shot... Sometimes the first doesn't "stick.".
