Fracture Overview

Fractures vary greatly in size, severity, and the treatment needed. They can range from a small, easily missed crack in a hand bone to a massive, life-threatening break of the pelvis. Serious injuries, including injuries to the skin, nerves, blood vessels, muscles, and organs, may occur at the same time as the fracture.

Because of the diverse presentation of the patient with a fracture and the severity of injury, it is difficult to include information here to your specific needs. If you think you might have a broken bone or a complication from fracture repair, then please visit Dr. Matthys' locations page and schedule a consultation by calling 701-241-9300.
