Our primary care physicians provide expert fracture care.

Fractures can be quite painful and debilitating, but with the proper treatment, you can fully regain your normal function and get back to your life.

In a simple fracture, the bone is cracked or broken, but the surrounding tissues are not seriously damaged; no broken ends protrude and, therefore, the skin is not broken.

A physical exam is the first step in the diagnosis of a fracture. Indications of a fracture may include a swollen and painful area, a deformed limb, or a bone that has pierced through the skin. An x-ray will verify the presence of a fracture, its type, and whether it is partial or complete.
