Looking for a study on replacing my clavicle. I've had 2 surgeries for plate installation and tendon replacement. I have an closed separation and my current doc took from my hip a filler piece, the first doctor left a large gap and it wouldn't heal and he was hoping to get a bone Stimulatur but No no bone Stimulatur and 7 months later I found my current doc. We've been trying to get one but after final appeal they said I can't have one. My current plates screws have loosened and I'm now looking at a 3rd surgery to secure? I am 49yrs old and don't want to give up but this involves me getting into a study on replacing my clavicle. 3d scanning and printing, use me cut me open and let's see what the results are. We win either way the outcome is. If it doesn't work I won't have use of my left arm, if I don't have a chance to replace it I'm still crippled with the use of one arm. Any help in finding such a study would be so appreciated.
