Because of my orthopaedic care, I can do everything I could do before I fractured my upper left arm, including my favorite hobby, sewing!

I was nervous when doctors told me that my injury would require surgery, so it was a great relief to have someone as caring and competent as Dr. Bennett. Being left handed, I was worried that breaking my left arm would affect my ability to sew, but Dr. Bennett did such an amazing job I have no lasting pain from my surgery, and very minimal scarring. Thanks Dr. Bennett!

    My mother will be 102 in September 2014. In March she fell and injured her left elbow, a fracture of the distal humeral diaphysis or supracondylar humerus. Initially the surgeon did not recommend surgery due to her age. However, casting was not effective. The bone didn’t heal after casting for 6 weeks. Because of her muscle weakness. the cast was too heavy, She opted for a splint, instead following the doctor’s wish to re-cast for 3 more weeks. She then had a splint for awhile. The bone is now displaced. And now, 5 mo. later in August, she is having numbness and nerve pain. Why is surgery not an option due to age? Could she still have surgery 5 mo after the initial injury? If not, what supportive treatment may be recommended. The doctor has no plan now, only to see her on an as needed basis.
