Subacromial Decompression Repair Protocols
Patients can expect a relatively quick recovery from this minimally invasive approach. There is minimal immobilization and following subacromial impingement surgery, many patients are able to return to everyday activities quite quickly.
Dr. Getelman will prescribe a short physical therapy rehabilitation program designed to restore range of motion and shoulder function.
For additional information on subacromial impingement treatment options, or for additional resources on the subacromial decompression procedure, please contact the office of Dr. Mark Getelman, orthopedic shoulder surgeon serving the Van Nuys, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and Los Angeles, California communities.
