About Fracture Reduction
What is it and what are my treatment options?
Fracture Reduction Overview
A foot or ankle fracture is a serious injury that requires medical attention. An appointment with a Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) foot and ankle specialist should be made as soon as possible. A fracture reduction may need to be performed to align the broken bone.
How is a fracture reduction performed?
A fracture reduction is a noninvasive procedure, an incision is not made. General or local anesthesia is given to ensure the patient feels no pain or discomfort. With x-ray guidance, a CONA foot and ankle specialist gently manipulates the foot or ankle to align the broken bone. A splint is placed on the foot or ankle to immobilize and protect it.
What does a fracture reduction treat?
A displaced fracture occurs when a bone breaks and the fractured ends do not properly align. Displaced fractures will not heal properly unless a fracture reduction procedure aligns the bone.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!
This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.
These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
