Fracture Care: Non-Operative and Operative
Learn all about fracture care with Brian Gruber, MD, MBA, board certified orthopedic surgeon in this month’s orthopedic education video. Dr. Gruber discusses how most fractures are non-operative and can be treated conservatively right in the clinic. When surgery is required – which is not often – he shares the basics of a fracture surgery. Dr. Gruber also discusses what can be expected as far as recovery from a fracture. He shares how each fracture is different and the standard of care is often specific to an individual patient’s fracture. Finally, he shares how physical therapy may be needed for fracture recovery and the benefits of physical therapy for fracture injuries.
