What is "open reduction internal fixation"?

Over the years of representing accident victims injured on the job, in car accidents or other accidents, we have come across some severe injuries.  With serious broken or fractured bones we often see surgery being a necessary medical procedure to stabilize the bone in order to have it heal properly.  

Open reduction Internal fixation is a type of surgery that encompasses two parts.  First "open reduction" is where the broken bone is put back (or reduced) in its normal place. And secondly, "internal fixation" is completed with the use of steel rods, screws, or plates to keep the broken bones stable so the bones can heal properly.
