Re: True Jones Fracture with failure to heal diagnosis

There are pro's and con's with grafts as you know. My feeling is that a graft of your own bone with your own tissue elements is better than cadaver bone which serves as a matrix for new bone to form.

Your doctor might want to consider using a bone stimulator, although it might take fighting with the insurance company.

Good luck.
