Surgery is often needed for depressed and displaced tibial plateau fractures. Usually both a CT scan and x-rays are both needed to fully evaluate the fracture pattern. ...Read more
Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing. A fracture means a break in the cortex or the strong layer of outer bone cells. In an adult the average time for that to heal varies greatly but is often considered to ...Read more
