Minimally Invasive Surgical Malunion treatment

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

A malunion occurs when a fracture defies the normal healing process where the bones are bent, overlap a joint, and develop into deformities due to an abnormal, abrupt and/or a twisted connection. If the bones are left in these unnatural positions, patients may experience limited movement, result in a gait of the lower extremities, be unable to bear weight, and can develop nerve damage. For the most part, a malunion is caused by premature cast removal, misalignment of bones, and other factors with the tendency to disrupt the natural fusion of bones. Orthopedic surgeons at Florida Hospital specialize in performing minimally invasive surgical malunion treatment.

Minimally invasive surgical malunion treatment is an innovative surgical technique that involves making small pinholes near the malunion to avoid cutting into tissue and muscles. This less invasive surgery may reduce infections, decrease complications, shorten recovery time, and can possibly eliminate any future occurrence of another malunion forming. 
 
Though patients must undergo a second surgery, minimally invasive surgical malunion treatment is highly regarded as the best possible treatment option to repair this contorted connection resulting from prematurely removing a cast, misalignment of the bones, and weakened bones that undergo unnatural healing.
