When Can I Go Back To Work After Shoulder Narrowing Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I know after shoulder narrowing surgery patients are released for full activity after 12 weeks but what is your recommendation for returning back to work? (more range of motion at weeks 5 and 6).
A:That is probably not unreasonable. Given the type of work a dental assistant does the range of shoulder motion at one month after the surgery should be adequate.
