Removal of bone spurs in the shoulder has been the most common should surgery for many decades. THe issue is that most papers show that it isn't necessary. Most papers show that our mechanistic way of looking at the cause of rotator cuff tears--- rubbing away due to a bone spur--- was also wrong. The most recent paper I discuss in this post was a well performed study using a treatment arm, a placebo arm and and nocebo arm. Guess what the authors found?
