AC Joint Repair

AC joint repair surgery is an orthopedic treatment option when the ligament in the AC joint, located where the shoulder blade and collarbone meet, is torn or damaged. Arthroscopic keyhole surgery can provide a stable and permanent repair that reduces pain and restores daily function and mobility of the shoulder.
