Problem Fracture Referrals
Appointments and Referrals:410-328-6292 410-328-6292
Surgeons at the RA Cowley Shock Trauma Center and University of Maryland Medical Center are international leaders in the care of orthopedic trauma.
In addition to providing acute care, Shock Trauma Problem Fracture Program's team of specialists routinely see patients with previous fractures that continue to have problems.
Unfortunately, even after excellent initial care, fractures can require treatment for complex issues, such as: .
- Infection and osteomyelitis
- Limb deformity or leg length discrepancy
- Joint stiffness or arthritis after fracture
- Symptomatic hardware
Treatment Beyond Standard Fracture Techniques
Our physicians 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
