Clavicle Repair

If you fall on your shoulder, a broken clavicle could be the result. Our doctors often see people who break their clavicles in  bicycling, skiing and snowboarding accidents.

Clavicle fractures do not always heal well on their own  because the shoulder cannot be placed in a cast. Many clavicle fractures can be treated without surgery, but you may need surgery if the bones are pushed very far out of place or you are very active.
