Within orthopedic surgery, a branch that deals with the skeletal muscle system, we find forearm interventions.
The forearm operation requires a surgical intervention and a adequate recovery.
During the operation, the patient will be asleep and/or have a nerve block that makes only the arm numb. The choice will depend on the operation and the patient. It is for that reason that for the election it is necessary to speak with the specialist doctor to arrive at a common sense.
During the operation, one or two long incisions will be made along the forearm. The bones will be straightened and one or two steel plates several inches long will be attached to the straightened bones with screws to keep them in that position while they heal.
