Fracture Care

Treatment of fractures has been the hallmark of orthopaedic surgery since its inception. Whether treated in a cast, traction or with surgical repair, the goal is restore anatomy and preserve function. Associated with bony fractures is a complex of soft tissue and joint issues that must be understood in order to allow a return to normal function.
