Comprehensive Arthroscopic Management - CAM Procedure - Successfully Delays Shoulder Replacement for Young, Active Patients with Shoulder Osteoarthritis
Date:9/20/2013

Vail, Colorado (PRWEB) September 20, 2013

Newly published research, shows that the innovative CAM procedure is a viable surgical option to delay shoulder replacement for young, active adults suffering from shoulder osteoarthritis (OA). Dr. Millett, Director of Shoulder Surgery at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado developed a joint-preserving arthroscopic treatment approach - called the Comprehensive Arthroscopic Management (CAM) procedure - to reduce pain, improve function, and delay the need for shoulder replacement for young, active patients.

The CAM procedure is a newly developed, innovative treatment for shoulder osteoarthritis. OA of the shoulder is a common cause of shoulder pain and dysfunction for many patients. Symptoms of OA include: pain, loss of motion, and functional impairments. To diagnose this condition an x-ray will show joint space narrowing and the formation of bone spurs, which is a confirmation of shoulder osteoarthritis. Total shoulder replacement is an effective treatment option for shoulder OA, but it is not ideal in young and otherwise active individuals.

The CAM procedure is performed using minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery. Pain is alleviated by removing loose and torn cartilage and by decompressing nerves that are impinged by bone spurs. The CAM procedure also restores motion by excising scar tissue and re-shaping the ball of the shoulder so that movement is more fluid and full.

The exact incidence of shoulder OA is still unknown – recent research has shown it to be associated with older age and prior trauma to the shoulder. There are multiple non-operative treatment options for OA, but in more severe cases surgical treatment is recommended. In the cases of young, active adults, the CAM procedure is an option that can preserve the shoulder and delay the need for total shoulder replacement.
