Baby forearm closed reduction
My 3 and half yrs old son fell from the slider 2 weeks ago and broke his both the bone in forearms in right hand..he had a closed reduction procedure and doctor was able to fix it as shown in attached post procedure x-ray (taken a week after the procedure). As per our surgeon the bone is not completely  straight yet. He believes that it will fix fully within 3 to 6 months by itself as he is a growing  baby while the cast can be removed in 4 to 6 weeks from the day of the procedure and his hand will be back to normal. Please share your opinion on the same after looking at both pre procedure and post procedure x-ray if we are on the right track.

Ulna reduction is ok. Radius reduction can be better. Although, even in present condition, bone will join and remodel. Acceptable reduction... Fine tuning can be done if possible.
