The signs and symptoms of a femur fracture depend on the location and severity of your bone break. Your femur fracture may lead to:
- Difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg
- Immediate and intense pain
- Visible bony protrusions
- Obvious deformity
You’re also probably going to find that your injured leg is no longer straight and that it’s shorter than your other leg. If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s important to have an immediate evaluation.
At Mehling Orthopedics, you can receive in-house, digital X-ray imaging so you can often get diagnosed on the spot. After examining your injured leg and looking at your images, Dr. Mehling or Dr. Yufit can design your treatment plan. Schedule your femur fracture exam with Mehling Orthopedics as soon as your injury occurs. Click on the online booking feature or call your most convenient office to speak with a team member.
