What will happen during ORIF surgery?Nate Deisler
You’ll breathe oxygen through a mask and our team will track your vital signs as the surgery is performed. After cleaning the affected area, your surgeon will make an incision through the skin and muscle near your clavicle. Your surgeon will bring the pieces of your clavicle back into alignment, and they’ll secure the pieces of the clavicle to each other using screws, metal plates, wires, or pins. After the team has secured the bone, your surgeon will surgically close the skin and muscle around your clavicle.
