Ouch. My left shoulder started to freeze* in Summer 2011. The physiotherapy exercises didn't do a lot to help, but physical manipulation by an osteopath improved it considerably, and it's now almost back to it's pre-frozen state.
Of course, every shoulder is different, and no doubt some do require surgery. Best wishes for a successful treatment.
