1 yr ago i hit my buttock hard on a chair leg. 2 hematomas , iced + they absorbed into my butt, now I have extreme pain upon sitting, what could it be?
No real treatment: There really is no real treatment for this. If it is a very large calcified hematoma then you may want to consult a surgeon about possible removal. However, there is always the risk of it recurring in the same place. ...Read more
Usually none: Most scalp hematomas will resolve without any surgery needed. The body will break the clot down as it does any bruise over time. Rarely if the hematoma is tense and expanding it can be drained by opening the skin and washing the area out. Those on blood thinners may have to stop them for a short time if there is an associated clot/bruise on the brain. ...Read more
Time of Injury: It depends on the time of the injury. If its acute, then I do agree with my colleagues that a heated paperclip and puncturing the nail will evacuate the hematoma. However if it is chronic, a total nail avulsion might have to be performed since the blood has probably thickened. ...Read more
Should I seek further treatment for tibia hematoma, soft tissue damage due to auto accident that is still largely visible and painful 6 weeks later?
Tibial Hematoma: Yes, whenever a medical condition fails to adequately improve or resolve, it is important to follow-up with your doctor.

May the protruding part of the disk L4-L5 (4.2mm) be sliced off using some minimally invasive surgical procedure? I have dynamic stenosis at L4-L5. Strong pain in lower right buttock after sitting for 2+ hours. Conservative treatment did not help.
upon how miuch of the "stenosis" is actually due to the herniated material from the disc and how much from BONY stenosis (in the canal itself or the foramenal (side openings between the verterbrae) where the nerve exits. The kind of "focal" MICROSCOPIC surgery you describe is the LEAST disruptive of your spine architecture and offers your BEST CHANCE!
Hope this is helpful.....Good luck

Was baker's cyst/thrombosis caused by car accident 3.5 months earlier given large bruising front of knee? Warfarin treatment caused large hematoma.
I went to the orthopedic np for knee pain. My MRI and x-rayshowed patellar tilt and hematoma. Treatment suggested:knee brace/warm compress. Should i go to a sports med or an orthopedic md for second opinion?
Need good exam: If the tilt was the only problem, fixing the mechanics that caused it would be the first step. In most athletes, this is working on the quad to hamstring strength ratio and strengthening the gluteus medius (many accidently over strengthen the itb/tfl, the other hip abductors, which can worsen the problem). Reasonable to start with non-op sports med, and if hematoma needs to be drained, see ortho. ...Read more
