Rotator cuff repair: There are probably too many factors to consider here. At your age, the chances if having a full rotator cuff tear is less common, but if it has occurred, we would recommend an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. A rotator cuff typically tears at the tendon close to where it meets the bone, and cannot heal on its own. Certainly you should be seen by a specialist and evaluated fully! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

SLAP tear extending from superior posterior to anterior
inferior labrum. Possible tear of middle glenohumeral ligament. Partial-thickness bursal surface supraspinatus tendon tear. Focal cartilaginous loss of glenoid.
Suggestion: Assuming that you suffer from anterior dislocations, where the humeral head moves out the front of the socket, i would recommend you look at the thrower's 10 program. Concentrate on the exercises for shoulder... If you are doing to do push-ups avoid going deeper than 90 degrees at the elbow since this will put your shoulder in a vulnerable position for dislocation. Avoid tricep dips for sure! ...Read more
