After the operation

You should make an appointment to see your GP practice nurse 10 days after the surgery.  This will allow the nurse to check the wound and remove any sutures if required (rarely needed).

At the 6 week follow-up appointment Mr Smith or Mr Thomas will check the wounds and the movement of the shoulder.  Depending on the type of operation a further appointment and physiotherapy may be required. Alternatively, if you have made a complete recovery, you will be discharged from the clinic.
