Calcaneus Fracture Treatment in Orange County
A fracture of the heel bone (calcaneus) is one of the most complicated injuries to overcome.
These severe injuries typically occur after high impact events. It is also import to determine if there were any other injures during the accident.
If there is very minimal displacement of the calcaneal fracture fragments, then casting can be performed.
Surgery for Calcaneus Fracture in Orange County
The goal of calcaneus fracture surgery is to recreate the articular surface of the subtalar joints. Timing of surgery is important. Secondary to edema, there is an increase for soft tissue complications.
I prefer to do my surgical correction with a minimal incision approach.
To schedule surgery or a second opinion with Dr. Kolodenker please contact our office.
Recovery after calcaneus fracture surgery
The patient will spend a few weeks not walking on the surgical site in order to prevent displacement
