S/P AC Joint Reconstruction

Surgery for an AC joint injury aims to relieve pain and restore function by removing the damaged end of the clavicle bone. The more sever sub-types of shoulder separation (IV through VI) usually require surgery due to the sever displacement of the clavicle causing pain and pressure on the nearby trepezius muscle.
