Bone Spur Removal

Bone spurs are abnormal bony growths that can develop on the edges of bones. They often occur in response to conditions such as osteoarthritis, joint degeneration, or other forms of joint or bone damage. Bone spurs can cause pain, limited joint mobility, and other symptoms when they impinge on nearby soft tissues, nerves, or blood vessels. The procedure is performed to eliminate or reduce the size of bone spurs on the heel, elbow, foot, hand (fingers), and limbs.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

Surgery to remove a bone spur, a bony growth that develops on normal bone, is known as bone spur repair. Near the bone spur, your doctor will make one or more tiny cuts. We refer to these wounds as incisions. The fragment of bone will then be removed by the doctor. The procedure could be arthroscopic. A few tiny incisions are made, and an arthroscope with a lighted viewing tube is used to do the procedure. The doctor could also make a single, bigger incision if there is a necessity for open surgery

What to expect after your surgery:

  • After the procedure, the incision is closed with sutures, and a dressing or bandage is applied.
  • Postoperative pain management and physical therapy may be recommended to facilitate healing and recovery.
  • Recovery time can vary widely depending on the specific procedure and the individual patient, but typically ranges from weeks to several months.
