Most of us have broken a bone or two in our lifetime. But only a few have experienced a bad break needing more than just a cast and the time to heal. For those who have a complex break, seeking a qualified expert to correct the fracture can lead to better results than going to a general surgeon. If you experience a bone fracture or a bad break, Dr. Mattalino and the team at Angelo Mattalino, MD are here for you.
What is Bone Fracture Repair?
A bone fracture is another name for a bone break. Depending on how severe the break is and where it is located, you may need additional treatment beyond a simple cast or splint. You may need to call upon the expert services of Dr. Mattalino and his staff to correct the broken bones with specialized tools and techniques. If the broken bone is not correctly treated, it could substantially impact the patient’s long-term mobility and functionality.
How Do We Fix a Bad Break?
You and our team will review your medical history. You may have an X-ray, CT scan or MRI to get as much detail about the injury as possible. Once we can confirm which surgery is right to get you on the mend, we can schedule that procedure.
