When arthritis of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint is severe, the space between the acromion and clavicle narrows, causing the two bones to rub together, causing pain. During an Arthroscopic Mumford Procedure, the tip of the clavicle is shaved down to create space and widen the AC joint. Your surgeon will use an arthroscope to see inside the joint and ensure the proper amount of bone is being removed.
