When a broken bone (fracture) fails to heal through traditional treatment or conventional surgery, it is called a nonunion fracture. This may occur during the healing process when the bone does not receive enough nutrition, blood supply or is not properly stabilized to heal. Nonunion fractures can be very frustrating for patients and drastically affect quality of life. Our team works with each patient to ensure prompt treatment that is designed for his/her specific needs. Treatments we provide often include:
- Bone stimulation, this small device produces ultrasonic and pulsed electromagnetic waves
- Surgery to establish stability and provide healthy blood supply and soft tissue at the fracture.
- Placement of bone grafts to provide fresh bone-forming and supportive cells.
