Group of Cape Girardeau doctors using new method to heal fractured wrists that reduces healing time
Southeast Missourian

Dr. Brian Schaefer of Orthopaedic Associates in Cape Girardeau relates and how he has embraced Wright’s MICRONAIL® Fixation system for many broken wrists, allowing patients to heal faster and have a greater range of motion. The MICRONAIL® implant uses an internal fixation technique and results in little more than a removable splint for the patient to wear after the surgery. Schaefer sees many benefits to the new procedure that outweigh those of traditional bone-setting techniques like casts.
