In brief: Possibly

Rotator cuff surgery may involve debridement or repair of the rotator cuff.
Repair of the rotator cuff often necessitates sutures and commonly involve the use of suture anchors which are anchored into in the bones of the shoulder with suture to allow for repair of the cuff. Closure of the surgical wounds often involves the use of sutures or staples; it depends on the preference of the surgeon.
