    For patients considering the TSR and still have intact rotator cuffs, here is a link to another interesting article that was written one year ago. A surgeon in Kentucky has developed a posterior approach to TSR while sparing the cuff, and it appears to have good results. This is showing significantly shorter recovery times similar to the anterior cuff-sparing method. I plan on sending this surgeon my records and after a consultation, he'll make a decision on whether or not I'm a candidate.
