Bone Spurs (cont.)

Surgery

In some cases, if your symptoms cannot be controlled with more conservative treatment, surgery could be an option. The goal of surgery is to remove the bone spurs to allow for a more normal joint or to remove the pressure on muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves. The surgery may just remove the bone spurs, but in other cases, the removal could be part of a larger surgery such as a joint-replacement surgery.
