Close to near does not need to be hyphenated. It is a phrase that means nearly. Sentence would be, close to near full-thickness rotator cuff tear.
Sid, I notice you ask a lot of style/grammar-type questions. It would benefit you to get a book such as the AHDI Book of Style (no bashing please, it does have some value) or the Gregg Manual of Style or do some research for an Internet equivalent of these. Really!
