Clavicle Fracture / Distal Clavicle Resection Manhattan, NYC

Clavicle Fracture / Distal Clavicle Resection Manhattan, NYC


For more complicated clavicle injuries such as a clavical fracture or those that require complex procedures such as a distal clavicle resection, it is important to visit professionals who are knowledgeable and highly skilled who can provide you with the proper treatment. Columbia Center for Shoulder, Elbow and Sports Medicine can do just that. Their expertise has kept professional and collegiate sports teams on the field and playing their best for years. They are located in Manhattan, NYC and are easily accessible from Northern New Jersey as well as other parts of the city. Call today to schedule an appointment.


The clavicle or collarbone is a bone that runs along the upper chest on both sides of the body and is part of what is known as the shoulder girdle. It functions as a support for the arm allowing it the full range of movement and function as well as a conduit for physical impacts to be distributed from the upper limb to the skeletal core. Complications with the clavicle can range from simple clavicle fractures to more complicated ac joint injuries.  Simple fractures can be treated with the use of an arm brace while more serious fractures may require metal implants. In the instance of a severe injury to the clavicle and AC joint in the shoulder area, the distal clavicle resection procedure is used to correct the positioning of the different elements of the shoulder. 


This type of procedure should only be conducted under circumstances that require it. Many less experienced doctors may prescribe a drastic measure of treatment such as surgery prematurely, when a less invasive measure can be taken to rehabilitate the injured area. This is the criterion that sets Columbia Center for Shoulder, Elbow and Sports Medicine apart from other sports medicine practices. The combined experience on staff has given many people back their mobility in a manner that is safe and effective.  They provide the proper treatment for each injury and do so with the patient’s best interest in mind.
