Mr Lyons is a shoulder surgeon. Many patients are anxious that in being referred to a surgeon they will necessarily require a surgical treatment. However performing shoulder surgery is just one aspect of his medical practice. Surgery is only considered after having followed a careful assessment pathway. That process requires listening to the history of your problem and a thorough physical examination. Special diagnostic tests may be required. A variety of non-surgical treatments may be trialled before getting to the point of considering a surgical treatment.
