Trauma & Fractures

Fractures are a common injury resulting from traumatic events such as motor vehicle accidents, falls, or collisions during sports. If you have experienced this type of incident, you probably need to see an orthopedic surgeon to check for broken bones and torn ligaments. An orthopedist who has experience with trauma and fracture care is what you want.

Orthopedic doctors complete a surgical residency training program as part of their medical education. This training is typically done in a hospital setting, where orthopedic trauma cases are common. The physicians at McNeil Orthopedics have been providing personalized orthopedic care for more than 25 years, including vast experience evaluating and treating both simple and complex fractures.

Fortunately, most fractures do not require surgery. The body will naturally heal itself with proper bracing and casting to support healing. Surgery may become necessary if the fracture does not heal properly, or if the bones need to be reset before healing can begin.

Visit our patient education center to learn more about fractures, including the various types of fractures and treatment options.
