An injury of the bones or joints can cause excruciating pain and in some situations lead to disability. The goal of our highly skilled team of surgeons, nurses, physician assistants and rehabilitation specialists is simple: to return our patients to normal function as quickly and safely as possible. Centerpoint Medical Center will work with each patient and their primary care physician to develop a treatment plan built specifically to address that patient’s unique needs.
When you need care for a bone or joint condition or injury, look for the right mix of clinical expertise, proven technology and compassionate, caring treatment.
Where is your Pain?
Fractures, or broken bones, can cause permanent damage and disability without prompt, effective care. Treatment for the majority of fractures do not require surgery, but will need rehabilitation and other services to help you regain strength and movement in the affected part of your body. Our orthopedic team is skilled and experienced in fracture reduction, or bone-setting, as well as other treatments and procedures for specific injuries. We draw from all the resources of Centerpoint Medical Center to meet your needs before, during and after treatment.
To diagnose and evaluate your injury, our team will use special tests, X-rays and other imaging techniques. We’ll work with you and with other specialists as needed to ensure your treatment and follow-up plan is as comprehensive and effective as possible.
Some of the fractures we commonly treat include:
- Foot and ankle fractures, which may be treated conservatively or with surgery if warranted.
- Knee fractures, which treatment options range from bracing, therapy, or surgery.
- Hip fractures, which may be treated with non-operative methods, minimally invasive hip surgery or even hip replacement for worse cases.
- Neck or back fractures, including compression fractures and traumatic injuries.
- Hand and wrist fractures, which may require splinting or treatment by an occupational therapist, or in some cases surgery by a hand specialist.
- Shoulder and elbow fractures, which may require a sling or in some cases surgery and/or physical therapy.
Beyond the care of your emergent fracture, our specialists are experts in the care of chronic pain and sensitivity from osteoarthritis, to other joint conditions.
