Fracture Care Doctor

Our specialty-trained doctors at Steindler Orthopedic Clinic are recognized experts in assessing, diagnosing, and treating your orthopedic fracture injuries.

Every bone in the human body is susceptible to a fracture. Strong and resilient, our bones can withstand most significant forces without injury. However, if the pressure applied to a bone is too strong or the bone is weak in health, a break or crack in the bone may occur. Cases where a bone breaks but does not damage the tissue or skin surrounding the break are considered simple or closed fractures. High-energy injuries have a higher risk of complication and are considered complex fractures which require specialized treatment.  

Symptoms of a broken bone or fracture include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Discolored skin surrounding the affected area
  • Angulation or the area may be bent at an obscure angle
  • Inability to apply weight
  • Inability to move the affected bone or body part
