Can you reset a bone after it's been broken?
Let's say a bone is broken and it's never set, so it heals that way. Can you go back a couple years later and set it again so that it's at least slightly more functional?

Probably, it just depends on how and where it was broken and how it healed.

Yes, they just take you to surgery and re break it. Sometimes they put in pins and screws to hold in a good positin and then they remove the pins/screws so that they do not cause you pain/problems down the road. I have seen this done with collar bones, fingers, feet, legs, arms, noses, etc. Just go to the orthopaedic surgeon and they will fix you! GOOD LUCK!

Absolutely. It's called an osteotomy (surgical break) If the bone has set in the wrong position, the Dr takes a saw and rebreaks it. He then resets it in the proper position. After the bone has healed, the bone should be as good as new, with full function.
