I have a broken finger with a torn tendon. What happens during the surgery?

They get fixed!: Surgery for torn tendons and fractured bones repairs the damages. You will probably get immobilized and need physical therapy once cleared by your surgeon. Bones get fixed by either pins or plates and screws to hold the pieces together, allowing movement before it gets stiff.
