5 Things to Do Immediately After a Bone Fracture

5 Things to Do Immediately After a Bone Fracture

by Natalie (SU)
Hopefully you will never experience a broken bone, or fracture. Unfortunately, even everyday activities can result in a fracture when the circumstances are right. For instance, you may be walking down the street and fail to see a hole in the ground or an uneven pavement. The next thing you know, you’ve stepped wrong and it feels like you’ve sprained your ankle. You may have, or you may also have an avulsion fracture. This is a fracture caused when the force on a tendon or ligament pulls hard enough to fracture the bone it is attached to. This is just one of the many types of fractures that can occur, but there are 2 general categories of fractures. When you have a closed fracture, it means that your bone has broken but the break is contained inside your body – the skin has not been broken. Open fractures, on the other hand, are fractures in which the broken bone pierces the skin. This type of fracture can be more dangerous because there is a greater risk of infection. However, regardless of the type, there are 5 things to do immediately after a bone fracture.

Robotic surgery may sound like something straight out of a Sci-Fi movie, but it is very, very real. Not to mention sophisticated and very effective. Robotic (robot assisted) surgery has been FDA-approved since 2000. Most robotic assisted surgical procedures are minimally invasive, however they are sometimes used in more traditional “open” procedures as well. Robotic knee surgeries, for instance, have proven to have less associated risks, less pain, have faster recovery times, and overall less pain and blood loss than other forms of knee surgery. Below is a helpful guide to robotic knee surgery.
