Medical malpractice suits often often require permanent or significant medical expenses in order to out weigh the extraordinary expenses of proceeding. You should obtain a copy of your medical records and consult with a local attorney who is experienced in the handling of medical malpractice matters. Good luck.
A superficial stitch to close the wound after rotator cuff surgery has no connection to the resorbable stitches used to repair the actual tear. Hence removal of the superficial stitches likely did not cause your recurrent rotator cuff tear. But to be sure gather your medical records and consult local counsel for further clarity.
