Resolved Question:

I have a joint in shoulder joint from past 6 months.

have recently undergone a MRI

MRI impression shows:
1) doubtful superior anterior labrum tear with hill sacs lesions
2) inferior sloping of acromion causing moderate impression on supraspinatous tendon with partial tear involving bursal surface

Right now my orthopedic has suggested me key surgery (arthroscopy) to attach the labrum.

my question: is surgery the only treatment, are they any non-surgical treatment?? 2)can we delay he surger? 3) what are the risk if the surgery is delayed?? 4) what are the chance of the tendon tear again after the surgery??

Thank you for your query at
I have read your question with diligence.
It looks from your details that you are having problem of supraspinatus tendon,this tendon lies at upper area of shoulder joint.This tendon is compressed by a bone at upper part of shoulder joint.
Although this surgery is not a urgent one but this should be carried out to prevent rupture later on.
On conservative side you may ask for PRP therapy (Platelet rich plasma ) & steroid injection from your doctor.
If you delay surgery then there are chances of rupture of tendon.
Hope this will help you.
Feel free to discuss further,
With best wishes.

Will physiotherapy therapy in my case. How many days will it take for my recovery after surgery. What's the cost of the surgery? Will I be fully recovered after the surgery? Are they chance of tear after the surgery? I mean are they any chances of the tear after the surgery?

Yes,Physiotherapy may be helpful.
It may take about a month for recovery.
I am not aware about your place.You may ask to your doctor about cost.
Chances of complications are always with any type of surgry.It may depend on various factors which may be related with doctor or patient.
Hope this will be helpful.
