Closed Reduction Of Fractures

blog

Closed reduction is a medical procedure performed to set/reduce a broken bone without cutting into the skin. The broken bone is then put back in its place, which allows it to grow back together. A closed reduction can help your bone heal quickly, decrease pain, improve the chances that your limb will look normal so you will be able to use it normally after it heals, lower the risk of an infection in the bone, and remove tension on the skin and reduce swelling.
