A kyphosis from a structural, non fracture deformity is similar to a scoliosis type surgery and has an approximate 12 week recovery until return to full activity.

Full width radial sagittal band tear in my middle finger. What's the normal recovery time from surgical repair? Options besides surgery? Thanks!

Full width radial sagittal band tear in my middle finger.  What's the normal recovery time from surgical repair?  Options besides surgery?  Thanks!

Because it's a finger, (unless ur a musician, etc) id think u should b able to be mostly active in a few days at most. ...Read more
