Fractures & Trauma

If you have been involved in an accident and suffered a broken bone or multiple injuries to the musculoskeletal system, you will be referred to an orthopedic specialist. At Orthopedix MD (formally Meli Orthopedics) in Ft. Lauderdale and Margate, Florida, our orthopedic trauma specialist is ready to help.

Fractures and traumatic injuries need prompt attention by a specialist who knows how to respond in an emergency. Experience and in-depth knowledge of fracture care, including bone and soft tissue injuries, casting and bracing, surgery and fracture healing, is necessary for best results.

At Orthopedix MD, we use surgical and non-surgical procedures to repair injuries to the entire body after a trauma, including:

  • Bones that have not healed (nonunions and malunions)
  • Infected fractures and osteomyelitis
  • Burns and lacerations
  • Pelvis and acetabulum surgery
  • Bone grafting
  • Bone and joint transplantation
  • Limb lengthening
  • Complex soft tissue reconstruction

We’ll start with an X-ray to examine the fracture in detail. There are several types of fractures:

  • Complete Fracture: Bone is cleanly broken into separate pieces
  • Partial Fracture: Bone is cracked, not completely broken
  • Pediatric Fracture: Bone is bowed and not totally broken
  • Compound Fracture: Multiple fractures
  • Open Fracture: Broken bone is penetrating the skin
