According to an MRI I tore my proximal biceps tendon. I saw one Doctor and he said they don’t do surgery on that type of injury. I’m scheduled to see a 2nd Doctor at a better surgery center on Tuesday. I wanted to find out if anyone else had any experience with this? My MRI results are listed below. Thanks for any help and guidance that you may offer.

coracoacromial and coracoclavicular ligaments: Intact.
MUSCLES: Normal signal characteristics and bulk without edema or atrophy.
Quadrilateral space: Normal without masses.
Findings are present which can be seen in adhesive capsulitis.
