March 24, 2021

They discuss the mechanics of the injury and treatment options. Listen as they talk about what makes these fractures so complicated.


“This one can have some healing complications and oftentimes require surgery.” - Dr. Damien Dauphinee [02:06]


“Jones fractures are known to be at-risk for what is called a nonunion. A nonunion happens when the blood supply or the area that needs to heal isn’t healing as well, and your bone is trying to push to heal. It’s not healing, and it just becomes a chronic fracture. Painful, tender and obviously unstable.” - Dr. Raafae Hussain [06:54]
