So I'm 2 weeks post clavicle surgery. When I met with my surgeon after the surgery he told me he used a stainless steel plate with 9 screws. This is the official Washington Red Skins orthopedics center I went to. I was doing research on stainless vs titanium and it seems like titanium would have been MUCH better hands down. My surgeon seems trustworthy but my research leads me to believe that he knowingly used something that was inferior. I'm going to confront him about this and see why he did this. I am a skinny guy and it seems like steel is more rigid so perhaps he wanted to prevent too much movement? I told him I live an active lifestyle so I just can't imagine why he wouldn't use something that has a little more malleability and tensile strength.
