Distal radius fracture repair

A Distal Radius Fracture Repair is performed at Tucson Orthopaedic Institute to stabilize a fracture in the radius (larger of the two forearm bones) that occurs near the wrist. Once realigning the broken radius, a Elbow, Hand, & Shoulder surgeon positions a metal plate against the bone and anchors it with screws to stabilize the fracture. By clicking on the animation below, you will find more information about this procedure.
