  • A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.

  • Trauma is defined as a sudden incident causing physical injury. It is a broad term describing all types of injuries affecting the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, blood vessels, or bones that most commonly occur during sports, exercise, or any other physical activity.

  • Acute pediatric injuries are injuries in children caused by severe trauma. These injuries happen suddenly and range from severe bruises to bumps to broken bones.

  • Limb lengthening is a reconstructive procedure where the deformed bone is straightened or missing bone is replaced. It is performed in children and adults who have variations in their leg length because of a disease, injury or birth defect. The limb lengthening procedure can be performed by minimally invasive techniques.

  • Rotational deformities usually involve the extremities in children. They mostly occur due to rotation of the limbs at birth or due to neurological problems such as cerebral palsy. The malformation is commonly caused by the rotation of the bones, such as the thighbone (femur) and shinbone (tibia), which results in the inward or outward turning of the legs and feet.

  • Bone infection or osteomyelitis is a serious medical condition that needs immediate medical attention. Infection may occur due to an open fracture or surgery or infection in one area of the body may spread to the bone via the bloodstream.
