Dear Dr, I have a transverse fracture at the distal 5th metacarpal. The distal fracture fragment is displaced towards the palmar aspect with palmar angulation of the distal 5th metacarpal and impaction with overlap of the fracture fragments. The articular cortex is intact,There is no subluxtion or dislocation.It has been 2 weeks since the fracture occured what would be the best form of treatment to gain the most mobility back in my hand , Thank you for your time.

Hello, I suffered a transverse fracture just below the centre of my left tibia and after 16 months I m still in pain with it... I was cleared from orthopaedic care just under a year ago but I m concerned there may be a non-union issue etc... The area is tender to touch and there is a rather pronounced lump which again is tender to probe. What would you advise?

I am a male, 50 years old, non-smoker, no diabetes. In December 2012, I broke my femur bone (Transverse fracture). The treatment I received for this injury was Intramedullary nailing. In June 2013, one of the screws (close to the knee) holding the metal rod was removed because the bone was not healing (non-union). In July 2013, I was put on Vitamin D and calcium supplements because the removal of the screws was not helping the bone to heal. An x-ray did not reveal this treatment to be working so an MRI was ordered. The MRI revealed the bone is still not healing. The next option the Doctors recommended is an ultrasound bone stimulator. My question is this, If the ultrasound bone stimulator does not work, do I have another option besides surgery? Thanks for your time.
