Sachin Tendulkar returned home on Monday from London after undergoing an arthroscopic surgery to his right shoulder on March 27, sources close to him said.
"He returned yesterday from London," the sources told PTI, but his arrival was kept under wraps to avoid media glare.
Dr Andrew Wallace performed the surgey in London's Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth to stabilize Tendulkar's shoulder joint and reattach a damaged bicep tendon to his upper arm bone.
The star batsman was diagnosed with a posterior labrum tear of the right shoulder during the third Test against England held in Mumbai last month which ruled him out of the ongoing seven-match one-day series against the tourists.
His arm was put in a sling after the surgery.
It's not clear yet whether he would be able to regain full fitness in time for the Indian tour of the West Indies commencing on May 18 for which the squad is set to depart on May 12.
The tour, scheduled to conclude on July 4, starts with the five-match limited over series followed by a four-Test rubber.
The selectors are expected to meet at the end of the month to choose the squad for the tour.
