Patients of all ages can experience trauma and fractures. These serious injuries can occur during auto accidents, life-threatening falls, and countless other scenarios. Unfortunately, they can have a long-term impact on patients’ functionality and even affect their quality of life.
Bone fractures are extremely common, whether from high-energy trauma resulting in multiple injuries or from some other force or impact resulting in an isolated fracture and dislocation.
Our team expertly treats the full range of these injuries, no matter how complex, including long bone fractures of the upper and lower extremity. We also specialize in treating post-traumatic conditions such as malunions and nonunions (fractures that fail to heal properly) and osteomyelitis.
Trauma and Fracture Symptoms
Symptoms of a fracture or a post-traumatic orthopaedic condition can include:
A clearly misshapen limb or joint, sometimes accompanied by broken skin or visible bone (an open or compound fracture)
1. Pain, ranging from mild to severe
2. Restricted movement
3. Swelling, bruising, tenderness, or numbness near the fracture
