What Conditions Do We Treat?
- Distal Radial Fractures also known as Colles’ or Smith’s fracture occur traumatically and are associated with shortening of the radius and malalignment of the wrist.
- Finger Dislocation/Volar Plate Injury occurs when the finger joint is hyperextended (bent backwards) causing the volar plate ligament to tear. It can occur along with an avulsion fracture.
- Finger Fractures occur traumatically with treatment depending on the location and type of fracture sustained.
- Elbow Dislocation occurs when the bones that make up the elbow joint are forced out of alignment – typically when you land on an outstretched hand during a fall. The elbow is the most commonly dislocated joint in children sometimes known as a pulled elbow if they are swung or lifted by their forearms.
