Fracture Treatment Problems

Many Americans recognize our healthcare system as being a technologically advanced, first-world system in which some of the best and brightest minds in medicine constantly contribute new techniques and devices to assist in the healing process. However, given the sheer size of the United States and the number of patients and physicians in the country, there are bound to be moments of negligence, whether because of the recklessness of a particular physician or because of a mismanaged hospital. Even in something as simple as healing a broken bone, there are multiple ways in which a healthcare provider could actually do more harm than good.

Bone Surgery Complications

When a bone suffers enough damage in a fracture that doctors must use more complicated surgical procedures, problems can arise. Whether it is through surgically cleaning and resetting a bone or adding pins into a bone to promote growth, these surgeries can cause potential hazards which include:

  • Infection
  • Atrophy from pins or screws accepting too much of a bone’s natural stress
  • Additional damage from the heat of the operation
  • Corrosion from different metals chemically reacting with one another

These problems are often caused by a surgical mistake or a careless pre-operation decision. When surgeons consider which pins or screws to use, the type of metal or positioning of those devices must be considered. Failure to do so can come at great damage to the patient.
