Bone Bandage Can Be Used to Heal Fractures

A team of researchers from Duke University in Durham, NC recently published a research paper showing that a new bone bandage can be used to repair serious fractures. When someone is diagnosed with a broken bone, a straightforward injury will take about six weeks to heal. If the fracture requires surgery, the treatment process may take many months. When an individual is waiting for a bone fracture to heal, it can be hard to keep up with the daily routine. Now, there might be a way to speed up this process. If this research can translate to the clinical setting, it might allow someone to recover more quickly.
