Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Surgeon in Hermitage, TN

Surgical & Non-Surgical Bone Fracture Treatment

At Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics, we understand the impact that fractures can have on your daily life. That's why we are committed to providing comprehensive fracture care using a minimally invasive approach. Our goal is to help you recover quickly and effectively while minimizing discomfort and promoting optimal healing.

Dr. Baxter provides a range of fracture treatments, including:

  • Closed Reduction: This non-surgical technique involves carefully manipulating the broken bones back into their proper alignment, without making any incisions. It is often used for simple fractures or those that can be easily realigned.
  • Internal Fixation: In more complex fractures, internal fixation may be necessary. This involves the use of metal plates, screws, or rods to stabilize the fractured bones and promote proper healing. Our surgeons utilize minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, resulting in smaller incisions and faster recovery times.
  • External Fixation: In certain cases, an external fixation device may be used to stabilize the fracture. This involves placing pins or screws into the bone, which are then connected to an external frame. This method allows for precise alignment and promotes healing.

By utilizing minimally invasive approaches, we strive to minimize scarring, reduce the risk of complications, and expedite the healing process. Trust Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics for exceptional fracture care that prioritizes your well-being and recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does tendon injury treatment always require surgery?

No, tendon injury treatment does not always require surgery. There are non-surgical treatment options available depending on the severity and nature of the injury. It is advisable to consult with a medical professional to determine the most appropriate course of action.

I’m an athlete who’s been injured. How can I find relief before seeing a sports orthopedic doctor?

Here are a few steps you can take to find relief before seeing a sports orthopedic doctor:

  • Rest: Give your body the time it needs to recover and avoid further aggravating the injury.
  • Ice: Applying ice to the affected area can help reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Compression: Consider using compression bandages or wraps to provide support and reduce swelling.
  • Elevation: Elevating the injured area can help reduce swelling and promote healing.
  • Over-the-counter pain relief: Non-prescription pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, may help alleviate pain temporarily.

Remember, it's important to consult with an orthopedic specialist like Dr. Baxter for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan tailored to your specific injury.
