Fractures are a common occurrence that may happen at any time especially when moving in a vehicle at fast speeds. Furthermore, an ageing population means that fractures are more prevalent in the elderly due to osteoporosis. However, advancements in medicine and expertise have been consistent in providing numerous effective treatment methods.
Modern treatment does not focus on each bone, but also focuses on reducing risks of danger to a susceptible area, this is referred to as “Damage Control”.
Furthermore, the center makes use of modern equipment and surgical technology to increase the chances of successful fracture treatment. Newer methods results in less bruising around affected muscle and bone area. This allows for better blood circulation and leads to faster recovery especially in joint replacement surgery.
