Fractures & Trauma

Our surgeons have extensive experience with upper and lower extremity, pelvic and spinal trauma, including both soft tissue and bone injuries. Whilst most major trauma requires immediate attention within the Emergency Department, there are some instances that require operative intervention on a less urgent basis or which respond to non-operative management. We will work with you to develop the most appropriate management plan for an acute injury or long term issues associated with severe musculoskeletal trauma.

A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.
