FRACTURE CARE IN DOYLESTOWN & WARRINGTON
Receive Compassionate Care from Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists
Human bones are resilient and rigid; they can withstand the most significant forces without injury. However, each bone in the body can be susceptible to a fracture if the pressure applied is strong enough or the bone is in weak health. Ignoring a bone fracture, even a small one, can lead to long-term consequences and chronic pain. If you are unsure whether or not you have a fracture, it’s a good idea to visit an experienced orthopedic physician. Same day appointments are often available through our orthopedic urgent care.
Signs of a fracture include:
- Pain, swelling, and/or bruising
- Discolored skin surrounding the affected area
- Angulation – the area may be bent at an obscure angle
- Inability to apply weight to or move the affected area
At Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists, we are committed to providing Doylestown and Warrington with the best possible care and are associated with Doylestown hospital.

What is a Fracture?
A fracture is a broken bone that can range from a thin crack to a complete break. A bone can fracture cross-wise, length-wise, in several places, or into multiple pieces, depending on the severity of the break.
The main categories of bone fractures include:
- Complete: The bone snaps into two or more parts
- Incomplete: The bone cracks, but does not break entirely
- Simple: The broken ends of the bone line up and do not break through the skin
- Compound: The skin may be pierced by the bone itself or by a blow that breaks the skin at the time of the fracture
At Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists, our philosophy is to give our patients the best fracture treatment possible. We evaluate each patient as an individual and develop a customized fracture treatment plan in order to maximize function and allow for their speedy return to daily activities.
