Our physicians are highly experienced in treating all types of fractures and have helped many patients avoid a costly and unnecessary trip to an emergency room.
A fracture occurs when a bone sustains more force than it can handle. This often results from sudden trauma, but it can also be caused by osteoporosis, a tumor, or an infection. Some symptoms of a broken bone include pain at the site of the fracture, bruising, swelling, physical deformity, and tenderness, all of which should be treated by a medical professional.
At AOSMI in Freehold, NJ, healing broken bones begins with a diagnosis. An X-ray or other imaging scan will first be used to identify the fracture and determine the best course of treatment. Depending on the nature and severity of the fracture, treatment may involve realigning the bone and immobilizing it with a splint, brace, or cast to allow for proper healing. In some cases, including certain hand, shoulder, and foot fractures, surgery may be required. Common procedures include:
- Open reduction – This surgical procedure is used to realign a broken bone.
- Internal fixation – Screws or plates may be fixated to the bone to stabilize it and help it heal.
- Emergency treatment – For fractures in which the bone breaks the skin and is exposed, treatment typically involves rinsing the fracture and stabilizing the bone.
The entire AOSMI team is dedicated to helping patients of all ages by healing their broken bones in the most effective manner possible. By providing personalized care and comprehensive treatment options, we can help you regain mobility and functionality following a bone fracture.
