Our orthopedic doctors and surgeons will offer you the best treatment options based on the location and severity of your fracture.

Overview

We may use a cast to immobilize the broken bone, a brace to limit its movement and a traction device to align your bones. Plaster and fiberglass casts are the most common treatment for broken bones. In other situations, our doctors may give you a brace that allows for some controlled movement. If your break is severe, our surgeons may insert pins or rods that are attached to a metal bar to stabilize the bone.
