No hardware removal : You do not have to have the plate and screws removed unless they are prominent and rubbing on the skin or are causing pain. Routine plate and screw removal is not usually done because it requires a second surgery and there are holes in the bone where the screws were removed that may make it easier for the clavicle to fracture in the future. ...Read more
