PUT YOUR LIFE IN MOTION AGAIN WITH PROPER ORTHOPEDIC TRAUMA AND FRACTURE TREATMENT

We understand how a sudden injury or chronic pain can impact your day to day activities. During many events, the soft tissues and muscles of your body can encounter specific and unusual twists and turns. Traumas and fractures can take place due to any unexpected violent movement of your body.

Germanten Hospitalis specialize in  bone fracture treatment. This includes the full range of all types of fractures from the simple fractures to complex fractures.

WHAT IS A FRACTURE?

A fracture of a bone is a condition in which a human bone is cracked or broken. A fracture can also be called ‘a break to the continuity of a bone’.

Fractures can be caused due to high force impact or stress on a bone which is higher than what it can endure. Patients who are suffering from osteoporosis can also suffer a fracture due to fragility of the bones.

Fractures can range from a minor hairline crack in a bone to a completely broken or dislocated bone which tears out of the skin.

WE KNOW HOW TO REPAIR YOUR BONES, JOINTS AND MUSCLES:

A simple bone crack is treated by simple immobilization of the region with the help of braces, plaster casts and splints.

More complicated bone fractures need surgeries to correct the bone alignment and enable complete mobility for the patients.

In case of a suspected fracture, it is always advisable to get a diagnosis promptly, otherwise the condition can get worse and result in additional bone damage.

Our treatment varies according to the age of the patient and the endurance levels of the patient.

Our team of surgeons is experienced in treating even the most complex fractures.

At Germanten, we have assigned slots specially to cater to fractures, dislocations, sports injuries and other bone, tissue and joint injuries.

Common fractures 

Shoulder: Small fractures in the shoulder bones can cause constant shoulder pain and can adversely affect the patient’s daily routine

Daily activities like work, sports, sleep and so on become harder with chronic shoulder pain. At Germanten Hospital we have specialist orthopedic surgeons trained in shoulder surgery and have years of experience in the field.

Our team is renowned all over India for having the maximum specialized and certified shoulder surgeons.

Foot and Ankle: From absorbing the impact of your body weight during every step, or jump, your foot and ankle play a critical role in your everyday activities.  A painful ankle or foot makes life uncomfortable Our team of orthopedic surgeons can operate all types of fractures and injuries in  the foot and ankle region.

Neck and Spine: Backache is among the most common symptoms for which patients consult a surgeon. Fortunately, in many cases, spinal pain is caused due to the muscles and can be relieved by medicines.

However, if the backache is due to pressure on or pinching of one of the spinal nerves or due to a fracture in one of the spinal vertebra, our spine surgeons doctors can treat such conditions and ease the pain.

Hand, Wrist and Elbow: When the hand is injured, most of the everyday activities get totally compromised. Germantan Hospitals has doctors who have taken extensive training for treating hand, wrist and elbow fractures or injuries.

HOW ARE FRACTURES DIAGNOSED ?

In most the diagnosis of a fracture can be established with a plain X-ray of the affected part.  Further investigations include CT Scan, MRI Scan and bone scans.

Occasionally even after a bone fracture diagnosis, the doctors may need to conduct other tests to determine the condition of bones and tissues around the fracture.

HOW ARE FRACTURES AND TRAUMAS TREATED AT GERMANTEN?

A fracture needs to receive emergency treatment. Even though a minor fracture is not counted as an emergency, it is essential to categorize the fracture according to the level of pain and the possible soft tissue damage the patient may have suffered.

Fractured bones are set in their correct place. This is known as fracture reduction. Most of the fractures are treated with closed reduction without surgery. But larger and complicated fractures are treated with open with surgical reduction.

We use devices like pins, screws, rods or plates to fix the broken bone/s according to the condition. After surgery, the fracture/s are thoroughly cleaned to prevent infection. The fractured region is immobilized with a splint, cast or traction, which helps in reducing the pain.

The patients are given medication and painkillers to deal with the pain and speed up the healing.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU OR YOUR  NEAR ONES HAVE A FRACTURE

  • First and foremeost: DON’T PANIC !
  • Stop movement of the fractured body part
  • Wrap the fracture with gauze or a stiff cloth.
  • Don’t try to ‘fix’ or ‘reduce’ the fracture at home. It may impact the fracture adversely.
  • Try to support the fracture with other body parts until you reach the hospital.
