A fracture is a break in any bone in the body. Fractures are usually caused by trauma, such as a fall, twist, blow, or collision. Many fractures can be managed without surgery, but some benefit from surgical stabilization.
All surgeons with Orthopedic Associates of Hartford have trained at Level 1 Trauma Centers, which receive the most complicated of orthopedic injuries. Regardless of whether your broken bone occurred from a minor fall or a severe accident, you can feel confident that you will receive the best care for your broken bone. Our specialists also treat complex problems such as fractures of the pelvis, nonunions (failed healing of a fracture), and malunions (fractures that heal in an abnormal position).
