Fracture and Dislocation

Bones are the hardest tissues in your body, but if they are put under too much pressure or force, they can break or break apart. The most common causes of fractures are injuries, prolonged stress from overuse, and diseases that weaken bone, such as osteoporosis or tumors.

Fractures and Dislocation

There are different types of fractures, depending on the force that causes a bone to break.

These include:

  • stable fractures,where the broken ends of the bone are aligned and nearly dislocated.

  • transverse fractures,having a horizontal fracture line.

  • oblique fractures,having an angled pattern

  • fragmented fractures,where the bone is divided into three or more parts.

  • Open - compound fractures,that the skin can be pierced by bone.

Simple fractures may require only a cast or splinting, while more complex injuries may require surgical intervention. Whatever your injury, rest assured that we can put you on the path to recovery.


Dislocations occur when the bones in a joint move out of position, compromising joint function. This can happen when the ligaments that hold the bones together are torn, bones are broken, or a joint is affected by arthritis.

The most common dislocations include the shoulder, hip, knee, and elbow. There are two types of shoulder dislocations, both of which cause pain and imbalance. In partial dislocation, the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) partially comes out of its socket, while full dislocation means that the bone is completely out of its socket.

Symptoms of a dislocated joint include deformity, swelling, numbness, weakness, and bruising. A dislocation can also cause a torn ligament or tendon, or damaged nerves.

We offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical options to relieve these symptoms and repair the damage.
