Distal Humerus ORIF

Distal Humerus ORIF in Wayne & Paramus, NJ

Surgical fixation of humerus fractures near the elbow with plates and screws.

Distal Humerus ORIF (Open Reduction Internal Fixation)
Distal humerus fractures often have to be treated surgically with plates and screws that are fixated to the bone to stabilize the fracture. Depending on the location and type of fracture, more than one plate may be used on either side of the bone. Early guided range of motion may be encouraged to prevent stiffness. X-rays will be taken at follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and maintained alignment. The bone will usually take four to six weeks to heal, but the rehab process will take several months.
