What Is Fracture Surgery?


Fracture Surgery


A fracture is a term for a break in a bone and the surrounding tissues. Bones are broken when the force applied is more than a bone can withstand. Fractures of bones can be caused by trauma, falls, and diseases. A fracture can range from a thin crack to a complete break. It can happen to anyone but people with low bone density or fragile bones are more likely to develop fractures.

What causes a fracture?


The most common causes of a fracture are:

  • Trauma, such as a vehicular accident or a fall
  • Twisting of the foot or ankle, such as turning around too quickly.
  • Overuse, a repeated motion can weaken the bone, causing it to break.
  • Medical conditions such as Osteoporosis, a disorder that weakens the bones and makes them more likely to break.


What are the types of fractures?


Based on the broken type of tissue, fractures are classified as Simple Fracture and Complex Fracture.


Simple Fracture


 A simple fracture is one in which the broken ends of a bone are in close contact. In this type, the break along the length of a bone does not extend into the surrounding tissue.


Complex Fracture


In a complex fracture, the shattered ends of a bone are far apart and the break in the continuity of a bone extends into the surrounding tissue. Complex Fracture is often caused by an accident or injury, such as a car accident, fall, or sports-related trauma.




The symptoms of a fracture may vary depending on the bone. However, common symptoms include:

  • Swelling and pain
  • A deformity around a bone or joint
  • A change in skin coloration
  • Redness and bruising
  • Restricted movement


Complications of fractures


The complications of fractures are the consequences that can arise from a fracture. The most common fracture complications are pain, swelling, blood vessel damage, and nerve damage. Some other complications of a fracture are explained as follows:


a) Pulmonary embolism


Pulmonary embolism refers to the sudden blocking of a lung’s major blood vessel by a piece of bone that has broken off from another part of the body. The blockage can be a partial or complete occlusion of the vessel, which results in decreased oxygen supply to affected areas of the lungs.


b) Compartment syndrome


Compartment syndrome is most common in the lower limbs, but it may occur in any area of the body where a fracture has occurred. In this type of injury, a fracture and surrounding extensive soft tissue injury leads to  swelling and increased pressure in the closed musculofascial compartment and compression on nearby blood vessels. This causes impairment of blood flow, leading to permanent tissue damage.


c) Joint Problems


The joints consist of two bones that connect to each other, allowing for movement in the joint. Joint problems are usually caused when after fractures bones do not heal in their normal anatomical alignment, leading to incongruity and eventually arthritis.


d) Infections 


Infection is usually seen in cases of open fractures where because of extensive soft tissue damage, the bony fragments are exposed.


e) Osteonecrosis


Osteonecrosis is a disease that happens when because of fractures, the blood supply to that particular bone is compromised which leads to bone death. It is most commonly found in hip joint.




Dr. Tushar Ubale is known for performing the best Fracture Surgery in Mumbai. Some such surgeries are explained as follows:


1. Open reduction surgery


Open reduction surgery is a surgical procedure to repair broken bones. Open reduction is the most common type of fracture treatment and involves the surgeon bringing together broken bony fragments ( reduction of fractures) and fixing them with various metallic devices like plates, nails and screws.


2. External fixation surgery


External fixation surgery is a surgical technique that uses external devices to hold bones together and reduce the pain caused by fractures. External fixators are commonly used to treat open (compound) fractures when internal fixation is not possible because of extensive skin and muscles damage around the fracture.


3. Internal fixation surgery


Internal fixation is a surgical procedure used to set and stabilize fractured bones internally. Internal fixation surgery is a surgical procedure to treat a broken bone by inserting metal plates and screws. This procedure can be used to fix bones that have been fractured due to trauma, such as car crashes.
