CAM and Pincer Decompression

The right burs for the job

When performing an arthroscopic repair for FAI, osteoplasty and rim trimming are done by shaving back the cam and/or pincer bone spurs to re-create normal bone shapes of the femoral head and acetabulum. CONMED’s Signature Series™ Pre-Bent Burs allow surgeons to access hard to reach areas within the joint space to successfully shave down the bone spurs. Accessing these areas with the pre-bent burs may also eliminate the need for a posterolateral portal. An arthroscopic approach has proven favorable outcomes and safety compared to open and mini-open methods.1,2
