Union – This is when fusion is achieved and when the surgery is considered successful.
Non-Union – Sometimes complications from bone surgery or trauma arise in which the bone ends do not fuse together. There could be various reasons this would happen whether it be surgical technique, patient health or too much damage surrounding the area to be fused.
Joint Resconstruction – When non-surgical or arthroscopy is not an option or becomes inadequate. Joint reconstruction surgery is performed typically using durable metals and plastics and it helps to relieve pain and regain mobility that had become weak and painful from overuse and aging.
