ORIF and IM Rodding for Tibia, Ankle, and Foot Fractures

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is a common treatment option for fractures of the tibia, ankle and foot to help stabilize the broken bone and promote proper alignment and healing.  This treatment is performed as a less invasive alternative to surgery in fractures that cannot heal on their own with bracing and immobilization.

During the procedure, surgical hardware such as metal plates, pins and screws are used to align the bone and hold it in place while it heals.  Similarly, intramedullary (IM) rodding are inserted into the bone marrow canal of longer bones to provide long-term support.  These devices usually stay in the body permanently as long as no pain or other symptoms develop at the site of insertion.
