Fractures can occur to anyone, at any time in their life. Treatment of a fracture is focused on restoring function as quickly and as fully as possible. There are millions of broken bones each year and we see thousands of cases. Any type of fracture can be painful and requires prompt medical attention and care. If you are seen at Highland Hospital for treatment of your fracture, we can see you quickly, and you will receive world-class medical care in the comfort of a community hospital.
We treat patients who have breaks from falls, accidents, and myriad other reasons. These injuries can be simple or complex and include:
- Isolated breaks
- Stress fractures
- Multiple fractures
- Fractures with joint involvement
- Open fractures (bone is exposed outside of a wound)
- Non-union fractures (fractures that do not heal)
- Malunion fractures (fractures that heal incorrectly)
Our orthopaedic experts also understand that fractures can have numerous complications, such as shock, blood clots, wounds and tissue damage. We know how to identify and treat these coexisting conditions and Highland Hospital is well equipped to handle any such case.
