Treating Broken Bones
Bones are able to bend under some pressure, but when enough force is applied, they can fracture or break. Every year, millions of Americans break a bone, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Broken bones are generally caused by:
- Falls or other sudden accidents
- Reduced bone density caused by osteoporosis or cancer
- Overuse resulting in stress-related injuries
Every break and fracture is different. That’s why we carefully examine each patient’s condition and injury to customize treatment depending on the location and type of fracture. We care for all types of fractures, including hip, femur, ankle, humerus and pelvis.
Sports medicine is a specialty that covers the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries caused by sports and exercise-related activities. Our focus is to help patients make a full recovery so they are able to resume their daily activities and return to their sport.
