Diagnosis, Surgical Procedures, Operation, Trauma, Bone, Fracture
Of the six million bones fractured each year in the United States, 5 to 10% do not heal properly. Fractures range in severity and classification, and are therefore treated differently depending on the type of bone that was broken, the location of the break, and the way in which the specific bone regrows. It is crucial that the appropriate treatment be carried out in order to properly heal the broken bone.
