Broken collarbone – Our treatment

A broken collarbone is an injury that can happen quickly during sport and should be treated quickly and professionally to avoid long-term effects. Treatment without surgery is usually sufficient: Your arm will be immobilised in a sling and you will be given pain-relieving medication so that you can sleep peacefully. However, if it is an open broken collarbone, a comminuted fracture or if vessels and nerves are also affected in the course of the broken collarbone, surgery is necessary. You can rely on the many years of experience and expertise of our shoulder specialists in Hamburg when it comes to treating your broken collarbone.
