Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to fulfill oxycodone prescription [ Time Frame: within first 3 days of surgery ]
    data collected to the time from surgery until the patient chooses to fulfill a prescription for opioid medication following surgery

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. VAS pain (Visual Analog Scale) [ Time Frame: Post-operative day 3 ]
    patient-reported pain as measured on a scale from 0-10. Zero means no pain and 10 being worst pain imaginable

  2. Patient satisfaction [ Time Frame: Post-operative day 3 ]
    Patient will be asked on a 5 point likert scale to rate their satisfaction with their post-operative pain regime
