Problem Fracture Referrals
In addition to providing acute care, UM Capital Region Health specialists routinely see patients with previous fractures that continue to have problems.
Even after excellent initial care, fractures can require treatment for complex issues, such as:
- Non-union and mal-union fractures
- Infection and osteomyelitis
- Limb deformity or leg length discrepancy
- Joint stiffness or arthritis after fracture
- Symptomatic hardware
- Treatment beyond standard fracture techniques
Our surgeons are highly experienced in caring for post-surgical issues that can develop months or years down the road from the time of the original injury. These injuries may require:
- Complex orthopedic care related to problems that develop after the initial fracture care, wherever it may have been done
- Concomitant infection treatment
- Directed physical or occupational therapy
- Complex wound management
Additional care for problem fractures is available through the University of Maryland Medical Center Outpatient Orthopaedic Trauma Program, whose orthopedic trauma surgeons are global leaders in the research and development of cutting-edge treatment strategies and techniques to restore function and mobility after a traumatic injury.
