Offering Open Reduction at Our Offices in Freehold and Monroe Township, NJ
If you’ve broken a bone, you may be wondering what your treatment will involve. In many cases, fractures can be treated using a cast, brace, or splint, which immobilizes the area and allows for healing. With more severe breaks, however, open reduction and internal fixation surgery may be necessary.
The first part of surgery involves repositioning the broken bone fragments into the correct alignment. This process is referred to as “open reduction.” After that, the surgeon will insert metal plates, screws, wires, pins, or rods to ensure that the pieces of bone remain in the proper position throughout the healing process. This step is known as “internal fixation.”
When Is Surgery Necessary?
Although treatment is determined on a case-by-case basis, open reduction and internal fixation surgery may be required when:
- A bone is broken in multiple places
- A bone has shifted out of proper alignment
- A previously broken bone healed incorrectly after a closed reduction
