Fracture Care



Broken Bones (Fractured bones) - treatment and surgery: Peter D. Vizzi, M.D., Lafayette, Louisiana and surrounding areas including Breaux Bridge, Carencro, Opelousas, Abbeville, Youngsville, and Broussard.

A Broken bone (also known as a fractured bone) can disrupt your life and cause significant functional limitations if the injury is not treated correctly. Many times a broken bone can be treated with a cast, splint, boot or other functional device to assist the bone to heal. Sometimes surgery is needed to place the bones in a better position or to hold the bones correctly with surgical devices. Some of the common fractured bones include:

Ankle and Foot Fractures Clavicle Fractures Forearm / Radius / Ulna Fractures
Hand Fractures Hip / Femur Fracture Humerus Fractures
Knee Fractures Patella Fractures Shoulder Fractures
Stress Fracture Tibia / Fibula Fracture Wrist fractures
