Fixing Fractures with Screws Made of Bone
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Bone Fracture Lawyer. There are many different types of fractures; however, a patient with an open bone fracture runs a serious risk of developing an infection, particularly if the patient requires surgery to fix their injuries. Many of these individuals require screws and plates to put their bones back together; however, if this equipment ends up getting infected, it could require a re-operation to clean out their surgical site. Now, there could be new screws that could reduce the risk of infection following surgical fixation.
