As a chief resident in our trauma service, I saw a patient in the clinic from South America with a very angulated and poorly healed tibial shaft fracture.
He had been seen by several other Orthopaedic surgeons in the past; however because he was uninsured and his complex injury none would agree to treat him.
Despite this, I was confident I could help him through a complex surgery involving removing a wedge of bone at the fracture site and realigning the tibia anatomically, and finally placing a long titanium rod down the inner canal.
Although it took almost 6 hours of difficult surgery, ultimately we were able to achieve an anatomic reduction and fixation of the deformity. He subsequently was seen in the clinic in the post-operative period and went on to fully recover.
Sometimes the only recourse is to get hip or knee replacement surgery. This is a major operation that can be a difficult decision for many people.
