Diagnosing and Treatment of Traumatic Injuries

 

When you come to us with a traumatic injury, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation which will include a physical exam and imaging tests such as X-rays or possible CTs or MRIs. Following the evaluation, one of our surgeons will develop a personalized treatment plan.

Trauma can occur from a high energy or low energy injury and result in enough force to cause a fracture or significant body damage. While some fractures and injuries can be treated with a splint, cast, brace, or another device that can immobilize and protect the injured area, others are more complex and may require surgery. Some of the common surgical procedures we perform are:

  • Reconstruction: The purpose of a reconstruction surgery is to correct abnormalities triggered by damage caused by a major trauma.

  • External Fixation: External fixation involves placing screws and pins into the broken bone, above and below the site of the fracture so that bone fragments can be repositioned and stabilized.

  • Open Reduction and Internal Fixation: During this treatment, a surgeon will reposition bone fragments into their normal alignment and hold them together with metal plates or screws that are attached to the outer part of the bone.
