What is it?
This is a minimally invasive surgery that can reduce pain and act as a preventative measure for fracture-associated problems. Prophylactic fixation can ensure maximum mobility for patients. This procedure is often preferred over pathological fracture fixation because of its shorter recovery times and a quicker timetable for recovery.
How is it Performed?
Prophylactic fixation is performed by placing metal into the affected bone in order to strengthen the bone before it breaks or fractures.
