If that was my clavicle fracture I would get a second opinion from an orthopedic surgeon. It is a completely displaced clavicle fracture with some comminution and a cortical split distally. That might be indicated for operative treatment with a plate/s and screws or possibly pin fixation. In any case a second opinion never hurts. I would suggest looking for a orthopedic surgeon who specializes and is fellowship trained in orthopedic trauma. Good luck.
