In brief: When bone is healed

Your orthopedic surgeon will do an exam and obtain an x-ray.
The exam must show little or no tenderness over the broken bone. X-ray must confirm bone is healed. Ideally, wrist motion should be equal on both wrist. Occupational therapy may be necessary to optimize grip strength and motion.
