                  If you’re hoping for a speedy recovery from a bone fracture or orthopedic surgery, non-smokers get a lucky break. Research shows smoking inhibits healing. People who don’t smoke, on average heal faster. “Smoking affects every organ in your body,” says orthopedic surgeon Dr. Ed Humbert. He is on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. “that doesn’t exclude bones.” Here’s a breakdown of a recent study on how people healed after wrist surgery. 95% of the non-smokers healed completely, compared to 68% of smokers. The average healing time was over two months longer in the smokers. “No matter how bad the fracture is, if you’re not a smoker we can generally get it to heal very quickly and very well. Smokers can have the simplest of fractures and not heal,” Dr. Humbert says. Bones are nourished by blood like our other organs and tissues. Smoking affects oxygen levels in the blood and nicotine constricts blood vessels. “It’s a significant difference with the potential for the bone to heal at all. Along with the incisions around these surgeries. We have less blood supply because the surface oxygen level is lessened by smoking.” Just one more reason to nix the nicotine fix. When it comes to a planned surgery- kicking the habit prior can put you on the path to recovery quicker. “If they can quit even two weeks before the surgery and then not smoke for the next six weeks, that also dramatically improves potential for healing,” Dr. Humbert says. Smoky and bones- two words that don’t go together when it comes to your health.
