Clearance: Cardiac clearance for a cardiology procedure to be performed by a cardiologist is assumed. The same clearance for a procedure sans cardiologist is not assumed in general.

Cardiac clearance: In general individual who have a cardiac history will require a cardiac clearance by your internist or cardiologist. Surgeons in other specialities are being safe and want to know that the heart can handle the procedure. When you go for a cardiac procedure no clearance is required for the heart...But sometimes cardiologist ask other specialists to give clearance for lung disease etc.

Unexpected: A repair should bring the joint back to function. Typically the joint does not move. I would have the surgeon double check the joint.
