The patient in this case is an 11-year-old female who fractured the thumb of her dominant hand 1 year ago and now has a well-established non-union of the head of the proximal phalanx of her right thumb. Here, Dr. Rao and Dr. Perlmutter repair the fracture by harvesting a bone graft from the patient's iliac crest and transplanting it into the fracture site. This case was performed during a surgical mission in Honduras with the World Surgical Foundation.
