The Comprehensive Arthroscopic Management (CAM) procedure, developed by Colorado shoulder specialist Dr. Peter Millett, was recently featured in PRWEB. The CAM procedure is a viable surgical option to delay shoulder replacement for young, active patients suffering from shoulder osteoarthritis (OA). Dr. Millett, Director of Shoulder Surgery at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, conducted a research study on the effectiveness of the CAM procedure.
Shoulder osteoarthritis is a common cause of shoulder pain in people of all ages. Dr. Millett’s study used 29 active patients who were diagnosed with advanced shoulder osteoarthritis and were otherwise candidates for shoulder replacement. Dr. Millett treated each patient with the CAM procedure. Through survey evaluation and frequent follow-up, the study found that this joint-preserving arthroscopic treatment technique reduced pain, improved function, and delayed the need for shoulder replacement. For young, active patients, this shoulder treatment method is a highly recommended option.
