Some types of bone fractures are life-threatening or at risk of healing incorrectly, leading to disability or loss of function. When the skin has repaired itself, extensive scarring can cause permanent disfigurement. Both types of injury can present a lifetime of challenges.

Disabilities and Disfigurement
Broken bones are not only an inconvenient injury. Serious breaks can lead to life-threatening complications. Compound fractures, where the break punctures the surface of the skin, are the most dangerous type of fracture. They are prone to becoming infected, and because of the serious damage done to the bone, they may require extensive surgery to set the bone pieces back in place and secure them so they can heal.
Scarring is the body’s primary response to many types of injury. Scar tissue is able to spread and fill injuries of nearly any size, but it can also limit motion in areas where it develops. It is less flexible and less protective than the tissue it replaces. When scarring occurs on the face, hands, or other highly-visible parts of the body, it can be disfiguring.
