Answer

Further inpatient care is indicated only in refractory patients. Patients receiving arthroscopic or open capsular release frequently remain in the hospital for several days to permit interscalene anesthesia and aggressive, monitored physical therapy. However, patients rarely have to return to the hospital following the initial surgery.
