Depends: Any time you have surgery, there are risks of pain, bleeding, infection and the risks of anesthesia. In addition, fracture surgery can have the risks of delayed healing, not healing, or healing in a bad position, as well as failure of the hardware used to treat the fracture. It really depends on the exact type of surgery being done.
