Broken bones can be painful and common sense says to seek help immediately. If you suspect a simple fracture visit Urgent Care or your primary physician. For anything more serious, you should go to the emergency room. Fractures may be caused by trauma, such as a fall or accident, osteoporosis which weakens the bone or overuse when repetitive motion such as in sports, results in a stress fracture.
A variety of techniques are used to repair a fracture depending on the type of fracture and location. If surgery is required, our surgeons use the most advanced and least invasive techniques to speed recovery.
If you are suspected of having a fragility fracture or diagnosed with osteoporosis, Holland Hospital's Bone Health Services
can provide expert diagnosis and treatment programs to prevent future fractures and keep your bones healthy. We will work closely with your primary care physician to make sure you stay safe and strong.
