Pied-billed Grebe #16-2188

On September 30, Dr. Ernesto performed surgery on grebe #16-2188 to repair the bird’s left humeral fracture. Surgery went smoothly, and Dr. Ernesto placed an intramedullary (IM) pin through the length of the bone to stabilize the fracture. An external fixator was attached to keep the IM pin in place.
