Approach a bone specialist to get optimal treatment of the shoulder fracture
Trauma and very serious injuries can cause a fracture of the glenoid (socket) or humerus (ball) of the shoulder joint. Many injuries are treated with the help of medicine, but the serious problems can only be treated with the help of surgery. For treating some fractures, surgery is required because there is a very high risk of arthritis. Many fractures do not heal completely or heal in the wrong position if proper precautions are not taken. The final decision whether or not a surgery is required is taken by a competent bone specialist in Dubai after examining the condition of the patient.
Most of the shoulder fractures heal within six weeks of the injury. However, it depends on whether the injury is small or serious. Most of the shoulder fractures are non-displaced, that means that the anatomic position is not affected much. In the very serious cases, the surgeons have to make some adjustments in order to restore the normal anatomy. Very often the rotator cuff muscles are torn and injured. Such factors can create complications during the treatment. So, the bone specialist has to thoroughly examine them before starting the treatment.
