    "What ever happened to resetting the broken bone and applying a cast?"

    Why do they always take the surgery route?

    Anyone know?

     



     

    That was me

     

    The new way: Hospitals and their employees (Dr.) make a hell of a lot more money selling surgery and all that goes with it...Hospitals cut - Operating room, Diagnostic equipment, anesthesiologist, Anesthesia, support staff, monitoring equipment, Plate and Screws, recovery room...ect. $60K+  Then theirs the Dr.'s Cut - $15K
     

     

    The Old way:  Emergency room visit, X-Ray, set and Plaster.  $2K

    It really depends on the break. if it had just been on the long bones, that is what they would have done.

    Exactly. Clean breaks, they just reset it and it heals. If it's more of a multiple spot break, then it's surgery.

     

    He clearly didn't have a clean break.   I am still very surprised he took 2 months off and it still wasn't right.  Usually, older people have more of an issues with that sort of thing.



    Generally athletes recover to surgery because it`s faster to recover, and the probality to recover is bigger than normal treatments
