The adult human body is made up of 206 bones which are all susceptible to fractures. Freeman orthopaedic physicians are uniquely qualified to assess any type of fracture, perform a diagnosis and provide the best treatment available. Some treatments may include splints, casts, or slings, while others will require corrective orthopaedic surgery. There are times when even a routine fracture will be delayed in healing or will heal in a way that does not allow for the maximal return of function. When that occurs, Freeman orthopaedic physicians intervene to ensure the patient’s injuries heal correctly.
For 2017, Carechex® ranked Freeman’s hip fracture repair among the Top 100 in the nation, Top 10 percent in the nation, Top 10 percent in the region, #1 in the state, Top 10 percent in the state and #1 in the market for patient safety.
