I got hurt on the job a few months ago. I did PT & Cortisone injections in my shoulder, but I'm still in pain.
On Friday, I'm having a Mumford procedure performed. The entire surgery will consist of an Arthroscopic Subacromial decompression, distal clavicle resection (they will be taking out a small piece of my clavicle), & a possible repair of a labral tear.
I read about direct & indirect procedures. It seems that the direct approach has the best outcome. Is that true?
I'm not an Ortho nurse. Has anyone had this surgery or had patients that had it? How was the outcome? The success rate? ROM post-op?
Any info will be VERY appreciated. I'm really nervous about getting the surgery, but I'm unable to perform my job now so I don't have a choice. I've been on light duty. I really need to get back on the floor.
Please respond. Thank you.
