Broken collarbone – our treatment

No question: a broken collarbone (clavicle fracture) causes you severe pain. Nevertheless, your injury is comparatively minor and easy to treat. The fracture often heals when we just immobilise your arm for a few weeks using an arm sling. Surgery is required if you suffer from a more severely displaced, open fracture or comminuted fracture. Fractures with injuries to your blood vessels and nerves must also be treated surgically.Our experienced shoulder experts are at your disposal with all their experience and medical expertise for your shoulder pain.Together with you, we investigate and decide on the need for shoulder surgery for your broken collarbone.
