Surgery time to remove tibia nails
« on: April 08, 2021, 03:15:23 AM »

Does anyone know approximately how many hours it takes a surgeon to remove Stryde nails (or any IM nail) from the tibia, both legs?

Hi, probably less than 2 hours for both legs.

dear marathonrunner,

I asked to the doctor and he said it is usually less than 2 hours or even 1. but in some patients the screws are covered in the bone and so it will takes longer for some.
