Historically, most collarbone fractures have been treated without surgery and have simply been allowed to heal. New studies, however, have shown that in many instances patients do better with surgical treatment. Specially-designed plates and pins are now available to fix collar bone fractures properly so that the bone heals in its original position. In such instances, surgery will provide a more predictable outcome in terms of shoulder motion and strength.
