Recovery Rehabilitation Time For Shoulder Surgery To Remove Bone Spur
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

However if you need a rotator cuff repair, for example, that may require prolonged recovery and immobilization ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a bone spur on top of the patella? I know it will have to be removed, but I am worried about the patella tendon. How is this surgery performed?
Do not worry:
A bone spur on top of the patella is a sign of chronic inflammation of the quadriceps tendon and may be seen in patients that sustain a quadriceps tendon rupture--most often men in their 40s and 50s. Most bone spurs rarely involve the joint and their presence alone does not warrant surgery.
With physical activity, proper warm up and a cool down period that includes gentle stretching can help. ...Read more
I have a bone spur in my wrist that hurts, and tingles, and I really want it removed. Will I be admitted to the hospital after surgery?
No short ans.: Bone spurs occur as a result of progressive remodeling, usually in response to increased physiologic stress on the bone as a result of cartilage loss (arthritis). Removing them does not change the physiology of the arthritic joint, thus they tend to recur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
