“I really appreciate the fact that you were able to put my arm back together. Thank you for doing such a good job!”

“I am extremely grateful for your excellent surgical skills. I tripped over our dog and broke my arm…it is all mended, the scar has healed and I have full movement.”

NON-UNION OF FRACTURES

Symptoms

Most fractures heal with rest and time. However, occasionally, bones fail to rejoin, causing pain during activity. Often this is not clear on X-rays, and the problem is only revealed by a CT or MRI scan.

Treatment

For symptomatic patients an operation to remove the scar tissue, which is preventing the bone from healing, and to fix the fracture is recommended. A cast or boot is usually required until the bone has joined.
