The Waleed Clinix offers 24/7 trauma services and covers all aspects of trauma including open and closed fractures management, intramedullary nailing, pelvic and acetabular fracture fixation, etc. Waleed clinix is one of the leading orthopedic clinics in Lahore which deals with all suggestive elective procedures such as hip and knee replacements, knee and shoulder arthroscopies, limb preservation surgery in bone tumors, and limb length. and limb deformity adjustment.
An Ideal Aseptic Environment:
Dr. Waleed and his team are paying thorough attention to aseptic conditions to prevent infection during fracture or trauma treatment. The orthopedic theater and clinic of Dr.Waleed have international standard laminar airflow to avoid the risk of disease during surgery. We don’t compromise on the standard of our orthopedic pieces of equipment.
Fractures and trauma treatment services:
A bone fracture is a discontinuity of the bone either it becomes cracked or broken. Fractures could be due to high-force collision or stress, or any other medical conditions like osteoporosis.
The prime objective of our early fracture management is
- To control bleeding
- Prevent ischemic injury (bone death)
- To remove sources of infection like dead tissues or foreign bodies.
- Fracture reduction and maintenance
We have to make sure that the affected part of the body should returns to its normal functioning after healing. The immobilization technique has to be followed to meet the cause. The non-operative and surgical methods are being practiced to ensure immobilization.
1. Non-operative therapy:
i) Casting (for angulated, displaced, or angulated fractures a closed reduction is done by using casts or splints)
ii) Traction (skin and skeletal traction via tapes or pinning insertion)
Traction is mostly performed for the thighbone.
2. Surgical therapy:
i) Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF):
ORIF is recommended for the exposed fractured site. Reduction is performed with devices like plates, screws, Kirschner wires, and intramedullary nails.
ii) External Fixation:
It supports and maintains bone length and alignment by stabilizing the fracture at the distance from the fracture’s site. External fixation is performed in the:
- Burns and soft tissues injuries
- Open fracture with soft tissue involvement
- Pelvic fractures
- Unstable fractures
- Limb lengthening procedure
- Non-union or infectious fractures
It may take several weeks to months for fractures to heal completely. You should minimize your activity level even after the removal of the brace or cast so that the bone becomes stable to bear the stress. The rehabilitation program includes exercises and a gradual increase in activities until the completion of the healing process.
