PROVIDING COMPREHENSIVE
PATIENT CARE

The Scapula Institute is a richly supported
research and educational institute dedicated
to the study of shoulder girdle injuries as well
as spreading our acquired knowledge to
relevant practitioners and affected patients.

SCAPULA FRACTURES
FOR PATIENTS

It is important to know that the majority of
scapula fractures do not require surgery. The
scapula has a rich blood supply, which helps
fractures heal quickly. In addition, the surrounding
muscles provide support for the bone during the
healing process.

CONSIDERATIONS FOR
SCAPULA FRACTURE MANAGEMENT

There has been a historical assumption amongst
clinicians that the scapula will heal fine
regardless of the amount of deformity. A more
defined picture is starting to emerge now that
research is focusing on patient oriented outcomes.
