Reilly Orthopaedic Surgery offers consultations for Orthopaedic Trauma which is any severe injury to bones, joints and/or soft tissue which could be the result of accidents or incidents such as a car accident, sporting injuries or a fall.
Orthopaedic Trauma can also be caused by overuse of joints from common things such as long distance running which can cause tibial stress fractures for example.
Other examples of Orthopaedic trauma may include
- Closed Fractures ( a broken bone where the skin has not been broken )
- Open Fractures ( a broken bone where the skin has been broken )
- Stress Fractures ( a small, hairline crack in a bone caused by overuse )
