Hello I'm Dr Chip

Is it a displaced fracture or just a crack through the bone?

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

But could you please answer my question?

Fracture is completely through and one piece is displaced above the other
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 9 months ago

OK

Then the fracture may heal on its own but you'd be left with a large callus--extra bone in that area--and it might limit your shoulder motion

So I would say that in your case that should be surgically repaired with a plate to realign the collar bone

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
