Historically, how did doctors treat fractures?

More nonoperatively

Forearm_fracture
In ancient, medieval & even colonial times, there were bone setters who treated fractures. Open fractures were often treated with amputations, though many folks died from them. As the concepts of antisepsis and anesthesia came on line, surgery became an option. Even still, fractures were still largely treated with traction or casting. In the last 50 years, surgery has become an option for many.

Well, it depends on if they (the doc) see a lot people who slip and fall or suffer some other form of trauma that may affect the elbow. Orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine and occupational medicine docs surely get their fill of them! =)

Do doctors see a lot of patients with cervical spine fracture?

They Should

Paralysis
Anyone with suspected or known cervical spine fracture needs to see a doctor immediately, as some fractures are not stable and can result in paralysis or death. Spine fractures should be treated by a orthopedic spine surgeon or qualified neurosurgeon.

Dr. Shawn Hennigan answered:

How painful is it when doctors remove rods in the bones after fractures heal up?

Hardware removal

Bone
Intramedullary rods are used for fracture repair in long bones. Once the bone heals, the rod has no bio mechanical function. On rare occasion, the rod may cause pain, usually by irritating local tissue. The rods can be safely removed. Usually the only significant pain is incisional, and short-lived.
