Fractures

Healing Broken Bones at OIC's Fracture Clinic

We tell them to stop, slow down, be careful. But despite our best intentions, we simply cannot protect our children from everything. A broken bone is no exception. But there’s one thing we can do: Make sure they get the right medical care.

That’s where the Fracture Clinic at OIC comes in. Our experienced team of pediatric orthopaedic experts offers the specialized care your child will need to heal and keep that bone growing normally, without any disruption.

Our goal is to do more than just mend a child’s broken bones. We want to help:

  • Make sure the broken bone is properly aligned as it heals
  • Make your child as comfortable as possible during the injury and healing process
  • Return joints to their full range of motion
  • Ensure that your child returns to school, sports, and normal life as soon as possible


 

Fracture Care Services We Provide at OIC

We’re not just any clinic. We are experts at treating broken bones in children. Our goal is to provide the highest quality treatment possible for children at all stages of growth and development.

 We offer fracture care that begins with diagnosis and spans the entire recovery process. This includes:

  • Initial treatment at OIC’s Urgent Care Center
  • Diagnostic tests and imaging, including X-rays
  • Surgical or non-surgical treatment, depending on your child’s specific fracture
  • Casting and cast care
  • Physical therapy, if needed
  • Follow-up care throughout recovery

 

What to Bring to OIC's Fracture Clinic

  • To make your visit to OIC’s fracture clinic runs smoothly, double check that you have the following:

  • Your child’s insurance card
  • Your picture ID
  • Court documents showing you have legal guardianship (if you are not the child’s parent)
  • A list of the child’s current medications
  • If your child has already been seen in an emergency room (ER) or by a primary care physician for the injury, please also bring: 

  • Any X-rays taken (the ER should be able to provide these to you on CD)
  • Discharge papers (when available)

 

Questions to Ask About Fracture Care and Recovery

Treating broken bones is more than just slapping on a cast. So, chances are, you’ll have lots of questions about your child’s fracture care and the recovery process.

The care providers at OIC’s Fracture Clinic are ready to answer your questions. In fact, we encourage you to ask us anything. We love questions.

Here are some questions you might ask: 

  • Will my child need surgery to treat the fracture? If so, what are the risks of this procedure?
  • Will my child need to wear a cast during recovery? For how long?
  • Based on our lifestyle and activities, what cast care tips do you recommend for my child and me to keep in mind?
  • Are there any activities my child should avoid during recovery?
  • What does follow-up care involve?
  • What are emergency signs that I should look for between now and the next visit?
  • How can I help my child manage any pain during recovery?
  • Will this injury impact my child’s future growth or mobility in any way?
