TRAUMA AND FRACTURES

Patients of all ages can experience trauma and fractures.These serious injuries can occur during auto accidents,Life-threatening falls,trival trauma and other scenarios.Unfortunately,they can have a long term impact on patients functionally and even affect their quality of life.

We have pioneered surgical techniques and technology to improve results for patients who have experienced traumatic injuries

CONDITIONS :

Bone fractures are extremely common resulting in isolated fractures and dislocation, we treat the full range of these injuries, no matter how complex, including long bone fractures of upper and lower extremity. we also specialize in treating post-traumatic conditions such as malunions, non-unions and osteomyelitis (infection to bone).

TRAUMA AND FRACTURE SYMPTOMS:

  • Deformed bone accompanied by broken skin or visible bone
  • pain
  • swelling, bruising, tenderness, abnormal mobility

DIAGNOSIS:

Fractures and post-traumatic orthopaedic conditions are typically diagnosed with a combination of a physical examination and imaging.

Frcatures are usually diagnosed using X-rays other modalities might also be used CT-scan and MRI.


TREATMENT:

Fractures of upperlimb, lowerlimb,pelvis and post traumatic conditions can be treated with surgical and nonsurgical procedures depending on the condition.

Common nonsurgical procedures include:

  • Immobilizing devices such as casts,splints,braces and traction.
  • Medication such as antibiotics for infection
  • physiotherapy

Surgical is necessary to fractures which cannot be treated by conservative means of treatment.It can be External fixation and Internal fixation.

Open Reduction and Internal Fixation:

Frcature site is adequately exposed and reduction of fracture is done. Internal fixation is done using devices such as k-wires, plates, screws and Intramedullary nails.

EXTENAL FIXATION:

Exfix is a procedure done in

  • Open fractures
  • Comminuted and unstable fractures
  • Limb lengthening procedures
  • Fractures with infections or non-union

We work with each patient to choose a personalized treatment likely to have the best long term outcome.

INTERNAL FIXATION:

Most commonly done for all variety of fractures

HIP FRACTURES:

Most commonly seen in elderly patients due to trivial fall,experts tend to fix it based on the bone stock and quality.The team of specialists who have more experience and expertise mobilize the fractured hip geriatric patients specially to prevent complications such as Bedsores,chest infections,deep vein thrombosis,paralytic ileus(decreased bowel motility)and painful toilet care.Surgery is performed taking over all condition into account.
