Osteoarthritis in the acromio clavicular joint can be very painful and lead to limited mobility as well as a limited stress capacity of the shoulder joint. The arthroscopic removal of the acromio-clavicular joint, without damaging the ligaments that hold the joint together, is a good treatment possibility.
