Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) stabilizes and helps in healing broken bones. During an open reduction, your surgeon realigns a broken bone back to its normal position by opening the skin and muscles and directly approaching the bone. With internal fixation, the bones are reconnected with the help of hardware like plates or screws.
