Fracture Management
at Lake Cook Orthopedics

Every board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute is highly experienced in the area of bone biology and healing. Our physicians employ a systematic approach to fracture evaluation, and are expertly trained in both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for fractures.

The first stage of fracture management at Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute typically involves protecting the injured bone, controlling swelling, and providing pain relief. Then your physician will work with you to determine an appropriate course of care. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that once the fracture has healed, the impacted limb will return to optimal function.

Fractures that do not respond to conservative management (including casting or other types of immobilization), or complex, high-risk fractures, often require surgery. If surgery is necessary, the orthopedic surgeons at Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute are well skilled in the latest minimally-invasive surgical techniques.  Additionally, the physicians at LCO will collaborate with our physical therapists to ensure you can return to activity as quickly as possible after the procedure.
