Is surgery the solution for fractured proximal phalanx ?
Am I going to have to have surgery on my pinky for fractured proximal phalanx The emergency room doctors call it a Salter-Harris fracture. They say it s pretty bad and I have to go see an orthopdeic surgeon tomorrow. I was wondering what they will do?
welcome to healthcaremagic
if proximal phalanx is fractured and badly as you have said orthopedic surgeon will fix it by methods only after evaluating your condition
do not worry these are done under anaesthasia and you will not feel any thing
hope you be all right soon
