The goal of any fracture repair is the early return to function in the patient, with normal weight bearing. Often this requires surgical intervention.
Optimal bone healing requires alignment, stability, and time. The length of time needed for proper healing varies with the location and nature of the fracture, as well as the patient's age and overall health status.
For fracture cases requiring surgery, internal fixation devices such as pins, wires, plates, and screws are very commonly used in order to achieve proper healing.
