Distal Clavicle Excision (Resection, Arthroscopic Technique)

During this minimally-invasive procedure, the surgeon removes the end of the clavicle at the acromioclavicular joint in the shoulder. Removing this portion of bone will decompress the joint. It will help relieve the pain and loss of motion caused by arthritis or impingement. This procedure is performed with a small camera, called an arthroscope, and miniature instruments.
