Open Reduction Internal Fixation Surgery

ORIF is a surgery that can fix severely broken bones. The fractures that can’t be treated using a cast or splint are treated using this procedure. These injuries include fractures that are displaced, unstable or those that involving a joint. Open reduction implies an incision to align the bone. Internal fixation is when the bones are held together with hardware like plates, metal pins, rods, or screws. This hardware isn’t removed even after the bone is fixed. It is an urgent surgery when your bone breaks from multiple places, get misplaced, or sticks out through the skin. The success of ORIF surgery depends on a person’s age, health condition, severity, and location of the fracture.


All About The Surgery

Performed by an orthopaedic surgeon, this surgery is used to fix fractures in the arms, legs, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle. Depending on the severity you may have to go for the surgery immediately or it may be scheduled. For scheduled surgery, your doctor will prescribe some medicines. You will also have to take a physical exam, blood test, CT scan, X-ray, or MRI scan. These tests allow the doctor to examine the broken bone. Depending on the fracture, the surgery takes up to two hours.

An anesthesiologist will give you general anaesthesia that will put you in a deep sleep during the surgery so you won’t feel any pain. The surgery will begin with open reduction where the surgeon will cut the skin and move the bone back to the normal position.

At the time of internal fixation, the surgeon will attach metal rods, screws, plates, or pins to the bone to hold it together. The hardware to be used will depend on the location and type of fracture. In the end, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches or staples, apply a bandage, and put the limb in a cast or splint.


Risks Involved

These include:

  • Bacterial infection
  • Bleeding
  • Blood clot
  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia
  • Reduced or lost mobility
  • Muscle spasms or damage
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Audible popping and snapping
  • Chronic pain due to hardware
  • Compartment syndrome



In case of a serious fracture, your doctor will suggest undergoing open reduction internal fixation surgery. Post-surgery, you have to stay for a few days in the hospital. The normal recovery period varies from 3 to 12 months depending on your case.  Be very particular about regular medication. Keep your incisions covered and clean to avoid any infection. Don’t apply pressure and continue your physical therapy. For best treatment in New Delhi, contact Dr. B Mohapatra at Indian Spinal Injuries Centre.
