Malunion Bones

A malunion bone refers to a bone that heals incorrectly after a break. Malunion can result in a bone being shorter than normal, twisted, or bent. This may cause pain, joint degeneration, “post –traumatic arthritis” or instability of the joint. Doctors at Tufts Medical Center in Boston provide a range of diagnostic and therapeutic services for malunion bones.
