Management of Fractures Around the Shoulder

Posted On 2020-08-20 15:21:09


Fractures around the shoulder (clavicle, scapula, proximal humerus) are common and can be challenging to manage. Adding to the complexity of treating these injuries is the fact that they can be managed by Orthopedic surgeons with diverse training and background—general orthopedics, orthopedic traumatology, sports medicine, and shoulder/elbow. This series aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the management of these challenging fractures and provide guidance from experts on both non-surgical and surgical techniques.
