Does anyone have experience with this injury rather than a dislocation? (All ligaments are torn off of the outer end of the clavicle) My ortho opinion, and medical websites agree that surgery is not needed unless you are a laborer that lifts weight overhead but I'd like to know if there is significant loss of (boarding)performance without the surgery.

You're better off getting a surgical repair if plan on keeping an active sporting lifestlye.
Kinda difficult to keep a boat anchored to a dock if it's not attached to anything, would you agree?

I second surgery. An A-C repair is pretty straightforward. I had a grade one separation and it wasn't totally "right" for over 6 months. Not really a fun injury.

I got a grade 3 separation snowboarding, didn't have the surgery, don't have any problems now except if i lift something heavy for an extended period of time, that and the bone sticks straight out of the top of my shoulders, chicks dig it

Had a grade 3 separation. Had the surgery. Glad I did. Do what the doctor says during rehab. Good Luck...........

Same as Tom. Big bone sticking out of my shoulder, but no surgery (sounds worse than it is). I hit weights hard when everything felt better and haven't had too many problems except for not being able to throw a ball as far as I used to.
