All three suspose to be. The last two that saw me were sports medicine who do most ortho and suppose to be shoulder specialists. Third one made the statement when I said that two others I had been to recommended mumford procedure.
In summary: original doc: only need mumford procedure
doc two: mumford and free up frozen shoulder with possible cuff tear
doc three: free up frozen shoulder and said i did have cuff tear but didn't advise doing both procedures as post op therapy for each are counter productive...
I was hoping to get two of the three to agree completely on what needs to be done.
Symptoms are limited rom in shoulder and some pain in ac joint.
