Hardware Removal and Recovery – When Is A Good Time And Is It Necessary?
Questions about hardware removal are pretty common and today I’m answering Elizabeth’s.
Elizabeth: “Do you recommend getting the hardware removed when safe to do so? I’ve been told my plate and screws will stay in, but I can feel them and it is uncomfortable.”
After an ORIF surgery (open reduction and internal fixation) a lot of people wonder if it’s necessary to have another operation and if the hardware is gonna cause any extra problems.
Internally fixed hardware can cause some trouble for some people, such as pain, infections, limited range of motion… but there are also others that never have these kinds of problems.
In today’s video, you’ll learn about 11 reasons why another surgery might be necessary and also why you might think twice before you decide to do so.
