When “Break A Leg” Isn’t A Good Luck Saying

February 18, 2019

Let’s face it, we will all have a fall or an accident at some point in our life. While most of the time we are able to get up, brush ourselves off and go about our day, there are times when serious injury may occur. Our bones are surprisingly strong but fractures can occur more easily than you think.

What exactly is a bone fracture? Are there different types of bone fractures requiring a variety of treatments? Is there anything that can be done to keep our bones as strong as possible to help prevent or reduce the risk of a fracture?

Dr. Sharon Babcock, an orthopaedic traumatologist with Wake Forest Baptist Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine has the answer to these and other questions at the BestHealth Seminar on Tuesday, March 26 at 5:30 pm. Dr. Babcock is a specialist in all bony disorders involving fractures and bone healing such as acute fractures, fractures that have not healed (nonunion), fractures that healed malaligned (malunion), and overall bone health.
