Conservative and Surgical Treatment Methods
A fracture is a break of bone or cartilage that occurs when the pressure applied to a bone exceeds its strength. The symptoms can include swelling, tenderness, and pain, and for more severe injuries, deformity or open wounds. Depending upon what kind of fracture you have, your physician may recommend non-operative treatment, such as immobilization using a cast, brace, or splint. He or she may have to manipulate the fracture back to its correct alignment prior to immobilization.
If your fracture requires surgery, you may undergo any of the following surgical procedures:
- Internal fixation – Stabilization of the fracture using metal plates, screws, pins, wires, or rods
- Open reduction – Realignment of the broken bones after opening up the fracture
- Emergent treatment for open fractures – Thorough rinsing of the open fracture before stabilization
