Following a fracture, it is essential that the ends of the broken bone be properly aligned as the body starts the healing process. Mal-union, where the fracture heals in a position that interferes with functional use or cosmetic appearance, is not uncommon following treatment for hand and wrist injuries and some fractures, such as those affecting the scaphoid, are often overlooked completely. With its poor blood supply, the scaphoid bone is also prone to a failure to heal at all (non-union).
Highly experienced in late reconstruction, Mr McNab offers the full range of techniques to correct mal-union and non-union of hand and wrist fractures, including corrective osteotomy (re-breaking and trimming the bone), fixation and bone grafting.
