A clavicle fracture refers to a break in the collar bone and is a relatively common injury. A clavicle fracture can often be treated with the use of a supportive sling, which works by preventing too much movement while the bone heals. In some cases however, surgery might be necessary to realign a complicated fracture. During the clavicle fracture surgery, I will carefully reposition the broken pieces of bone. The most common procedure that is performed for the repair of clavicle fractures is an open reduction and internal fixation. During this surgery, the bones are realigned and then held in place with plates and screws that are attached to the outside surface of the bone.
