Call the surgeon: The best answers to the specific needs of a post operative patient will be made by those who best know you and your case. Each patient has specific differences from others in the way their surgery went and the precautions a surgeon would have are based on those differences. If you can't get through now, follow the guidelines you were given at discharge. ...Read more

I had shoulder surgery done a little over a month ago, this was to scrape bone spurs and clean out the bursa. How long until I fully recover?
Structurally, there is only mild weakening of the deltoid insertion where the bone is removed. Rotator cuff, if not repaired should be ready to rehab right away.
I encourage my patients to start range of motion exercises as soon as the pain subsides (couple of days). I let them do whatever they are comfortable with after a couple of weeks. It generally takes 6-8 weeks for all the tenderness to end. ...Read more
Do I need surgery for fluid in the subcromial/subdeltoid bursa and a high grade partial thickness articulare sided tear supraspinatus tendon?
Varies: Full thickness tears of the rotator cuff will often retract and not heal; so if someone is young and reasonably active surgery usually optimizes outcome. Partial tears can heal at times without surgery. A high grade partial tear is very close to a complete tear; you would certainly want to be followed closely by an orthopedic surgeon to discuss your progress. ...Read more
Is surgery necessary to fix a ruptured bursa sac in shoulder? Pain is intense and widespread. Has recently gotten worse. Possible rotator cuff injury?
I do mma an weight train. I got surgery on my shoulder, 5cm tear on my rotator remove my bursa sac an shaved my collar bone. How did I do it? Thoughts
Injury: Mma is very severe stress on all joints, bones, muscles! Any severe activity/sport can cause serious injuries. Injuries do become easier to get if an athlete takes anabolic steroids. Sure, they help performance, but at a significant price. More injury risk because muscles get too strong for their attachments. Anyway, follow your doctors advice so that you get better. ...Read more

Complicated: Shoulders are very complicated and even a minor injury can cause problems for extended period of time. As long as you are slowly getting better and better, that's ok. If not, may need to see a different pt, work harder at it, or see your doctor again. Swimming is great for getting shoulders back in shape by improving range of motion, and strength of muscles. ...Read more

Walking, etc: After hip surgery, for the most part, there is transient weakness of the hip abductor and hip extensors. Therefore, after surgery, a program of walking with abductor and gluteal strengthening exercises is typically recommended. You will want to check with a surgeon on when to begin this program. ...Read more
Every labral tear does not need surgery. In fact many people have labral tears and may not even know it. Typically if I see a patient with a labral tear I try rehab first in attempt to decrease symptoms. The tear may still be present, but if it does not cause symptoms then surgery is not indicated. We must treat the patient not necessarily the mri.

Bedrest: In general, with hip fractures the choices are surgery with improved mobility or no surgery and bedrest. Surgery does increase the short term risk a little but patients tend to do better with having their hip fractures fixed than without. Prolonged bedrest leads to bedsores, pneumonia, and a high 6 month mortality rate. Talk with the orthopaedic surgeon about your grandmother's case. ...Read more

Reshape femoral head: Open hip disarticulation can be necessary to adequately expose the femoral head of the hip bone to reshapen (make round and remove extra bone) the femoral head-neck junction and also to remove excess bone along the acetabular rim (socket side of hip)- commonly seen in conditions that fall under the diagnosis of femeroactabular impingement (FAI) and a Cam (femoral) and Pincer (acetabular) lesion. ...Read more
Not sure: I don't understand the question. Are you implying that regular patients requiring hip prosthesis don't get the best available one? I don't think anyone can answer this question, but I don't think there is any reason to believe that general population is not being given the best available option. I may assume that certain brands of prosthesis may not be covered by insurance companies. ...Read more

"last week I had dhs hip surgery, I want know what is life hereafter, how to get cured soon and safe, also tell me what are risks after this surgery?
Hip fracture: It's very difficult to predict. You're young and the amount of displacement of the hip at the time of surgery predicts the chance of femoral head necrosis (death). If the neck heals, you can predict that you should have reasonable function with development of early, traumatic arthritis. If it does not heal, you may need an osteotomy. If the hip dies, you will need a total hip replacement. ...Read more
Changing: When first introduced, hip replacement was people over 65. As the prosthesis and our surgical knowledge have improved, we have been able to successfully get good long term results. This has allowed us to provide hip replacements for very young, in their thirties, and active patients with destroyed and painful hips. ...Read more
