Why do we operate on fractures?
The aim of operative fixation of fractures (rather than just a simple cast immobilization) is to get the injured bone into the perfect position for function and to get that limb moving normally immediately after the surgery, and weight bearing as soon as possible.
I have advanced fellowship training in major trauma surgery in particular complex fractures into and around joints and joint replacements. I use the latest technology and surgical techniques
Here are some examples of trauma surgery X-Rays:
Intramedullary Nailing for a fracture of the femoral neck and shaft (34y male fell off a roof)
Ankle fracture fixation
A severely smashed ankle joint following fall from a scaffolding 50y Male
Complex mid-foot fracture dislocation in 52y Female
Fracture of the tibial plateau (Knee joint) fixed
Fracture around a hip replacement fixed with a plate and screws
Fracture above a knee replacement, fixed with a plate and screws
Severe distal tibial fracture fixed with anatomical plate and screws (front)
Severe distal tibial fracture fixed with anatomical plate and screws (side)
