Proximal Humerus ORIF

Proximal Humerus ORIF (Open Reduction Internal Fixation) in Wayne, Paramus, and Parsippany NJ

Surgical fixation of humerus fractures near the shoulder.

Surgical intervention may be necessary with a proximal humerus fracture depending on the type of fracture and degree of displacement. In patients with a greater tuberosity fracture with displacement, surgery may be required to restore normal function to the rotator cuff muscles. In other cases, a hemiarthroplasty may be required if the blood supply to the humeral head has been disrupted. Sometimes the fracture can be fixed with a plate and screws used to realign the fracture and keep it in anatomic alignment while it heals. Regardless of the technique used for treatment, each patient will be closely followed after their surgery to ensure proper healing and maintained alignment.
