What can I expect after distal clavicle excision?

Distal clavicle excision is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. This means after being monitored during recovery after your surgery; you’ll be released to go home the same day. A dressing will cover the small surgical incision, and your arm will be in a sling. Your surgeon will tell you how long you’ll need to use the sling. Applying ice to your shoulder after surgery will help with pain and swelling. You will start physical therapy exercises right away after surgery and gradually increase activity to get the use of your shoulder and arm back.
