Fracture Care, Pediatric and Adult
Alamo Orthopedics understands fracture care: our highly skilled surgeons have dedicated their practices to offering the latest and most advanced techniques for fracture care management. Fracture care can be both nonoperative and operative.
Nonoperative techniques consist of closed reduction if required, followed by a period of immobilization with casting or splinting. Closed reduction is required if the fracture is significantly displaced or angulated. If closed reduction is inadequate, surgical intervention may be required.
Pediatric fractures are generally much more likely to tolerate nonoperative management due to their significant remodeling potential. No matter the type of fracture, we have a specialist to help you get back to enjoying life again.
Some of the surgical fracture care procedures we offer include:
Growth plate injuries in children
Large avulsion fractures near joints
Impending pathologic fractures secondary to cancer or other diseases affecting the bone
Failed nonoperative management of fractures (malunion and nonunion)
Fractures in individuals who poorly tolerate prolonged casting or splinting

I feel blessed
"Dr. Tuder is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He is caring, compassionate, and communicates with his patients as well as his patients’ families, and his staff members are pleasant and efficient. I feel blessed to have had him recommended to me after breaking and dislocating my wrist. If I ever had another injury, I would return to Dr. Tuder."
