Broken collarbone – our treatment

In the case of a broken collarbone – also known as a clavicle fracture – the choice of treatment depends on the severity of your injury. In the Rosenheim region, you are in the best hands with our shoulder specialists for the precise assessment and appropriate treatment of your broken collarbone.
In case of cracks in the bone or minor fractures without any serious displacement of bone fragments, it is usually sufficient to immobilise your collarbone with a stabilising sling for healing. As pain is felt during this time, e.g. while you are sleeping, you will also be prescribed painkillers. If you have a severe collarbone fracture, a correction with fixation of the bone fragments is required, which can only be carried out with surgery. Our experienced surgeons will explain to you in detail the operation recommended for your situation and will make the appropriate decision together with you.
