New Canaan Doctor Co-Authors Textbook On Rotator Cuff Tears

Daily Voice—November 24, 2014

Dr. Edward Craig has co-authored a textbook on large rotator cuff tears, a common shoulder injury. The 163-page book, titled, "Massive Rotator Cuff Tears: Diagnosis and Management," presents a comprehensive approach to treating a patient with a large rotator cuff tear.

"While other books have been written on this injury, this is the first textbook to focus on the treatment of very large tears," said Criag. "It covers everything from nonoperative management, to minimally invasive surgery, to shoulder replacement for severe cases."

Craig, who has written or edited eight other textbooks, designed a rotator cuff surgical repair system. He also co-designed a type of shoulder replacement called the reverse shoulder replacement. It is the most widely used technique in the U.S. for people who have both a rotator cuff tear and severe arthritis in their shoulder. In 2012, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation.
