Our team of doctors will determine the best course of action to ensure your fracture heals properly. Our guiding principle for treating broken bones is to make sure they are properly reset and protected from moving. Your treatment will vary depending on the type and location of your break.

Overview

Common fractures may not need more than a cast or special brace to limit or control your movement as the bone heals. The type of cast we use will depend on the nature of break.  In some cases, traction may be needed to align your broken bones with gentle movement. However, some fractures require surgery to set the bones in place and help them “knit” back together.
