Removing Metalwork

Removing Metalwork

From £1,722.00

Metalwork includes plates, screws, rods and wires. These are specially made from stainless steel or titanium for operations on bones.

Description

Various anaesthetic techniques are possible. The operation usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.

Your surgeon will usually remove the metalwork through the same cut used to put it in. Small screws or wires can sometimes be hard to find and your surgeon may need to use a larger cut and x-rays. Even larger pieces can be hard to find and remove if they are covered with scar tissue or bone.
