Orthopedic Trauma Specialist

fracture & trauma

Dr. Naved Ansari is an Orthopedic Trauma Specialist, assess and treat a wide range of injuries and provide care quickly and safely with a situation when a patient is in trauma due to an injury causing fractures, bone, muscle, and ligament and tendon damages.

He not only works closely with patients soon after their traumas but also during their healing process. His oversight is primarily to help ensure that any broken bones heal correctly and are properly aligned as well as to assure that the joint returns to maximum functionality and that no infections occur.

He treats back pain and slip disc without surgery in 90% of cases and only 10% of cases requiring surgery with outstanding results Also Knee pain treatment is done without surgery in most of the cases without joint replacement and best results in all joint replacement cases.

Bone Fracture

A bone fracture is a medical condition in which a bone is cracked or broken. It is a break in the continuity of the bone. While many fractures are the result of high force impact or stress, bone fracture can also occur as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis.

When an injury or traumatic event affects the bones, joints or soft tissues, Orthopedic Trauma Specialist surgeons are best equipped to heal the broken bones and related tissues. Orthopedic trauma typically involves minimally invasive surgery designed to provide the highest quality results with the lowest possible side effect profile.

Types of fractures include:

Simple fractures in which the fractured pieces of bone are well aligned and stable.
Simple fractures in which the fractured pieces of bone are well aligned and stable.
Unstable fractures are those in which fragments of the broken bone are misaligned and displaced.
Open (compound) fractures are severe fractures in which the broken bones cut through the skin. This type of fracture is more prone to infection and requires immediate medical attention.
Greenstick fractures: This is a unique fracture in children that involves bending of one side of the bone without any break in the bone.

Complex Trauma


Fracture Healing
Our body reacts to a fracture by protecting the injured area with a blood clot and callus or fibrous tissue. Bone cells begin forming on the either side of the fracture line. These cells grow towards each other and thus close the fracture.
Medical Therapy
The objective of early fracture management is to control bleeding, prevent ischemic injury (bone death) and to remove sources of infection such as foreign bodies and dead tissues. The next step in fracture management is the reduction of the fracture and its maintenance. It is important to ensure that the involved part of the body returns to its function after fracture heals. To achieve this, maintenance of fracture reduction with immobilization technique is done by either non-operative or surgical method.
Non-operative (closed) therapy comprises of casting and traction (skin and skeletal traction).
• Casting : Closed reduction is done for any fracture that is displaced, shortened, or angulated. Splints and casts made up of fiberglass or plaster of Paris material are used to immobilize the limb.
• Traction : Traction method is used for the management of fractures and dislocations that cannot be treated by casting. There are two methods of traction namely, skin traction and skeletal traction. Skin traction involves attachment of traction tapes to the skin of the limb segment below the fracture. In skeletal traction, a pin is inserted through the bone distal to the fracture. Weights will be applied to this pin, and the patient is placed in an apparatus that facilitates traction. This method is most commonly used for fractures of the thigh bone.
Surgical Therapy

• Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) : This is a surgical procedure in which the fracture site is adequately exposed and reduction of fracture is done. Internal fixation is done with devices such as Kirschner wires, plates and screws, and intramedullary nails.
• External fixation: External fixation is a procedure in which the fracture stabilization is done at a distance from the site of fracture. It helps to maintain bone length and alignment without casting.
External fixation is performed in the following conditions:
Open fractures with soft-tissue involvement
Burns and soft tissue injuries
Pelvic fractures
Comminuted and unstable fractures
Fractures may take several weeks to months to heal completely. You should limit your activities even after the removal of cast or brace so that the bone become solid enough to bear the stress. Rehabilitation program involves exercises and gradual increase in activity levels until the process of healing is complete.
