Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who underwent a shoulder surgery here, is recovering well and doctors have permitted him to go home.

Shoulder specialist Dr Sanjay Desai, who performed the surgery on the 43-year-old actor-producer, told PTI that they have permitted Shah Rukh to go home and it is up to him to decide when to leave the hospital.

Shah Rukh was admitted to the Breach Candy Hospital in south Mumbai yesterday to repair the tear in the main muscle of his left shoulder.

"The arthroscopic method of surgery, which was performed on the star, does not require opening of the entire joint. The surgery ensures less pain and minimal scar," Desai said.

The actor had injured himself on the sets of Dulha Mil Gaya last November and continued shooting for Karan Johar's My Name is Khan in Los Angeles during which he experienced severe pain leading to the surgery.
