Fractures (broken bone) occur frequently. They may happen during a sporting match, during training or even during every day activities.
Some fractures require admission to hospital and surgery, while many can be treated as an outpatient with a sling, cast, boot or brace.
Every fracture is different and always need to be treated based on its merits.
If you have a fracture that requires treatment, we will discuss with you the options for treatment of your fracture and the best place for you to be seen. That might be at the emergency department, at the fracture clinic or at St Vincent’s Sportsmed.
