Removal of plate & nails from Femur
My age is 41+ years & I have 1 plate and 10 nails in my right femur which was implanted around 5 years back. I also had an chest Arota injury along with commuted femur fracture, due to which a stent was put at that time and therefore I have to take blood thinner tablet on a regular basis. Noe I want to get the plate & nails remove, therefore l want to know that is it necessary or recommended that I get the plate and 10 nails removal done from the same orthopedic surgeon in my hometown or I can also get it done from some other Orthopaedic surgeon in Delhi NCR. Will it be worth it or better that I go back to my native place and get the removal done from the same Doctor, as it might take 1.5 to 2 months in rehabilitation post surgery. Kindly suggest me on it.

Kindly reaffirm the union of fracture. Removal of the implant should be done in a well equipped operation theatre. Sometimes removal of implant becomes a very difficult job. Be careful. God bless.
