Bone Grafting and possible infection?
Doctor Answers 2
Bone grafts heal uneventfully
One COULD Rx antibiotics during the early stage of this, but that is not routine or standard of care. Antibiotics are to be used to fight existing infection or prevent infection for those PRONE to infection. I would NOT recomend antibiotics unless you were in a higher risk category.
