Dr. Domes leads a K wire skills clinic with the current R1's

Dr. Christopher Domes recently led our current R1’s in a K-wire skills clinic.

K-wires are used for temporary fixation during some operations. After definitive fixation they are then removed. The pins are usually removed four weeks post operation. They can be used for definitive fixation if the fracture fragments are small (e.g. wrist fractures and hand injuries). Skills for life for every orthopedic surgeon.
