Both bone forearm fractures occur when both the ulnar and the radius break, usually as result of direct trauma or a high energy fall.
Both bone forearm fractures occur when both the ulnar and the radius break, usually as result of direct trauma or a high energy fall. A diagnosis is made by x-ray and treatment is determined by the severity of the fracture, the patient’s age and their medical condition. If the fractures are not displaced and can be adequately immobilized, the fracture can be treated in a splint or cast. Other fractures that are displaced, unstable, or open need to be treated with surgery. Please refer to our “Procedures” section for more information.
Every patient receives an in-depth consultation to devise a treatment plan that is right for their problem. Our specialists prefer non-operative and non-invasive treatments whenever possible, including physical therapy, medications, and/or injections. When we require surgery, we will then use minimally invasive surgical techniques to fix your problem, whether it is fixing a broken bone or repairing a tendon. Our goal is always to get you back to living your life normally as soon as possible.
