A fracture, also called a broken bone, often results from a high force or impact. A bone may be fractured completely or partially in several ways: crosswise, lengthwise and in multiple pieces. Most fractures are caused by trauma, but some can be the result of an underlying disease that increases the chance of fracture. We are experts at diagnosing and treating all types of fractures affecting the 29 bones of the hand and wrist. Many of these injuries can be treated without surgery. We offer a range of treatment options, including casts, splints and surgical procedures that use wires, pins, plates, and screws to stabilize and align bones.
