A broken bone is an unfortunate experience that impacts every aspect of your life. From your first visit to our office, our goal is pain relief and return to normal life as soon as possible. Through a collaborative effort with you the patient and your treating physician, we will formulate a treatment plan that achieves those goals.
A fundamental aspect of our orthopaedic practice, the care and treatment of broken bones (fractures) represents a large part of what we do. GMOI’s subspecialty practice offers the advantage of directing your care to the most knowledgeable, experienced member of our care team. Treatment for fractures ranges from cast immobilization, splinting, and supportive care to surgical intervention. Appropriate treatment is based upon the nature of the injury as well as your expectations and needs. Safety, quality of life, return to work or sport all factor into the decision making process. When surgical intervention is required, our physicians are well versed in the most up-to-date, minimally invasive surgical techniques as well as the most appropriate post-operative rehabilitation protocols to get you back to living life.
If you have sustained and injury and suspect you may have broken a bone or have been told by another physician that you have a fracture, call our office today to arrange for an expedient evaluation. To maximize the efficiency of your visit, please bring your x-rays (the pictures themselves, not the radiologist report) so we can formulate a treatment plan to your unique needs.
