Scaphoid Fracture Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)

Surgical fixation of scaphoid fracture that has either displaced or has not healed properly.

Scaphoid Fracture Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)

Sometimes surgery is indicated to treat a scaphoid fracture whether it is an acute problem or a long-term problem. A scaphoid nonunion occurs when a scaphoid fracture is chronic and has not healed properly. This may cause pain and can lead to an issue called scaphoid nonunion advanced collapse or SNAC wrist. In either an acute or chronic case the fracture is reduced and internal hardware is inserted to keep the fracture in proper anatomic alignment, bone graft may or may not be used to augment healing. Strict immobilization is very important after surgery to ensure proper healing of the bone. Once the bone is healed, the patient will begin exercises to regain motion and strength.
