Broken bones can often be treated conservatively, with just a cast or splint, but in many situations do require further treatment. It is important to treat a broken bone right away to ensure the bone heals in the proper position, and to make sure the vessels and nerves close by are unharmed. At OrthoNOW, an orthopaedic specialist will take X-Ray, and possibly use Fluoroscopy (live X-Ray) to determine what treatment option is best for your fracture.
Casts and splints are applied onsite at OrthoNOW. If your fracture requires a surgical procedure, one of our orthopaedic surgeons will follow your care.
