Patient Case History: Max

Humerus Nonunion: Plate Fixation

Pre-Op

Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Max fell and fractured his humerus (upper arm). After a few months of bracing, no bony healing had occurred. His arm was floppy and deformed, he was in pain, and he could not continue his job at Ellis Island.

Post-Op

He was referred to us for surgical treatment of his humerus nonunion. We repaired this using a locking compression plate (Synthes, Paoli,PA) and Grafton bone graft substitute material.

Follow-Up

His humerus healed...

Follow-Up

...and he was able to return to all of his prior activities.
