Massive Rotator Cuff Tears: What to do if you can’t fix it
January 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Westborough invites you to attend a Zoom continuing education presentation:

Presented by: Jacob Kirsch, M.D.

Rotator cuff tears are a very common source of shoulder pain and disability. While surgical repair can often alleviate pain and restore function, there are certain rotator cuff tears that can’t be fixed. This talk will review the management of irreparable rotator cuff tears and discuss the various treatment strategies that exist for this challenging problem.
We will need your name, email and phone number. You will then get an official Zoom Invite the day before the presentation which will include the meeting ID and password for joining. After the presentation you will receive an evaluation form which you must complete in order to receive your certificate (via email). You must be in the presentation room no later than five minutes after the start or you will not gain entrance. If you leave the zoom presentation you will not be allowed back in.
