S/P Humerus Fracture

Surgery may be required when the bone fragments are far out of position. Fractures close to the shoulder and elbow joints, especially fractures that extend into the joint, are more likely to require surgery. Fixation of the fracture fragments with plates, screws, or pins or in severe fractures with previous joint degeneration may require shoulder replacement.
