Open Reduction Internal Fixation of Spinal Fractures
Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is a surgery done to fix broken bones. This is a 2-part surgery. First, the broken bone is reduced or put back into place. Next, an internal fixation device is placed on the bone. This can be done with screws, plates, rods, or pins that are used to hold the broken bone together.
The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) procedures.
