Both bone forearm Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)

Surgical repair of the radius and ulna of the forearm with intramedullary rods or plates and screws.

Both bone forearm Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)

Both bone forearm fractures may need to be treated with open reduction and internal fixation. This may be done with intramedullary rods, more commonly in children, or plates and screws. The goal of surgery is to reduce the fractures to their proper anatomic alignment and keep them aligned with internal hardware. It will still take 4-6 weeks for the bones to heal, but the hardware ensures that they maintain anatomic alignment while the healing process takes place and therefore avoid improper healing which can cause future pain and dysfunction.
