From article Broken Scapula
My son has a fractured acromion and separated AC joint. We went to the Orthopaedic Center at Children's Hospital here in Dayton; but I'm wondering if we were given correct information.
The fracture is a complete fracture. The piece that is fractured is fractured OFF of the rest of his scapula. I was reading some stuff online here and they mostly say that surgery is needed if this is a complete fracture. However, this doctor that we saw say surgery is not necessary. When I asked how the bones will grow back together, he said it was, "magic."
Am I an overprotective mom or is this guy not worth his weight?
