Bone Spur Removal

Bone spurs are smooth but abnormal bony over growths that may or may not cause any symptoms in the joint. These excess bone formations can impinge on a tendon or other tissue causing symptoms and making it necessary to remove them.

Characteristics of bone spur:

  • Cause: Aging OR arthritis OR traumatic injury OR poor posture OR overuse of joint.

  • Symptoms: Swelling, pain, and tearing of tissue.

  • Treatment: Shoulder arthroscopy is performed to repair or remove the bone growth in cases where conservative treatment measures and physical therapy fail to provide relief to the patient.
