Patient Case History: Bill

Repair of Distal Humerus Nonunion


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Bill injured his right elbow a few years back. He had a distal humerus fracture that was repaired by other doctors. The fracture did not heal despite several operations. He came to us with a painful nonunion, instability of the arm, and broken internal hardware.


We repaired the nonunion, removed the internal hardware, and applied an Ilizarov/ Taylor Spatial frame to stabilize and compress the nonunion.


After frame removal, the bone was completely healed. Bill has been able to resume his active lifestyle.
