Fracture Surgery

How Will I Know if my Fracture or Broken Bone Needs Surgery?

Many displaced fractures may be amenable to surgical treatment.  Indications for surgical fixation include severe angulation, an open fracture or perhaps a fracture involving a major weight-bearing region.  The goal of surgical treatment is to improve alignment and in many cases to get you mobilizing much faster.  Discuss your options for treatment of the fracture with our orthopedic specialists.

 

What Happens During a Fracture Surgery?

A surgery for treatment of a fracture is usually termed an “Open Reduction and Internal Fixation” procedure.  This denotes that the surgeon will perform a dissection through an incision to gain access to the traumatized bone.  The fracture ends are then aligned and metal implants may be placed to hold the fracture in a stable position.  These implants may include metal rods, pins, screws and plates.

Dr.Jimenez is a great physician. My knee pain became very painful and friends thought I’d need a replacement. No. Dr.Jimenez injected into my kneecap and the pain stopped. He also repaired my ankle. Thanks, Gerry C.read more

Dr Jimenez and his staff are amazing. Dr. Jimenez replaced both of my hip joints the left in December and the right in June. I had a lot of arthritis and no cartilage and a bone spur. Since my surgeries I can say I am pain free and it actually feels like I was born with my new hips. The anterior approach is a very fast recovery Thanks again Dr Jimenezread more
