Hello there..... Most clavicle fractures occur in the midshaft and can be treated nonoperatively..... Surgery might be required if the fractured collarbone has broken through your skin, is severely displaced or is in several pieces..... Bone union usually takes three to six weeks for children and six to 12 weeks for adults.... Consult Orthopedician for further advice.....
