Fracture Care (broken bones)
A broken bone, or fracture, can be very painful and traumatic. A break may indicate a problem bone loss or brittle bones. This is called osteoporosis. The Arthritis and Fracture Care Center hosts an expert team of surgeons and PAs, skilled in helping investigate and treat the effects of aging bones. The team even provides care and education to prevent further damage.
For broken bones from a recent (less than 1 month old) injury, patients can utilize our walk-in, first-come first-served orthopaedic clinic inside the Summit Center. No need to wait at the Emergency Room. Open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. this service provides expert, specialized musculoskeletal care, Xray and even surgery, all in one location.
Orthopaedic Trauma is a branch of orthopaedics that involves treating bones, joints and soft tissues injured from a traumatic incident. The majority of trauma treatment involves healing fractured bones. At Northern Arizona Orthopaedics, we have doctors who specialize in rapidly responding and treating trauma in emergency situations. More specifically, Dr. Brandon Clark, primarily cares for patients in traumatic situations who have had major fractures of large bones and major joint areas.
Flagstaff Medical Center’s Trauma Services has partnered with NAO to ensure all trauma patients are cared for immediately. There is always a surge on call, 24/7, to ensure all Northern Arizona trauma patients receive the critical care they need.
