A fracture is a broken bone, and an orthopedic surgeon or orthopedic trauma doctor specializes in the treatment of orthopedic fractures. At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our expertly trained orthopedic specialists have the advanced education, training, and experience to treat simple and complex fractures. Our specialty-trained doctors often care for patients with fractures as a result of a fall, sports injury, or trauma such as a car accident, including:
- Stable fractures: The broken ends of the bone line up and are barely out of place.
- Open, compound fractures: The skin may be pierced by the bone or by a blow that breaks the skin at the time of the fracture. The bone may or may not be visible in the wound.
- Transverse fractures: This type of fracture has a horizontal fracture line.
- Oblique fractures: This type of fracture has an angled pattern.
- Comminuted fractures: In this type of fracture, the bone shatters into three or more pieces.

Consult an orthopedist if you notice any of these symptoms:
- Any sign of deformity
- Bruising or swelling over the bone
- Loss of function
- Pain at the injury site that gets worse with movement or pressure
- The inability to bear weight
