A nonunion is a fracture (bone break) that doesn’t heal, and a malunion is a fracture that heals incorrectly.
The board-certified orthopaedic specialists of Stanford Health Care have extensive experience treating people with malunions or nonunions.
The members of our multispecialty team develop a complete, compassionate care plan customized to your condition. The goal of the plan is to help relieve your symptoms, which may include pain that won’t go away. In addition to relieving symptoms, your personalized care plan is designed to help support your healing and the best quality of life possible.
Stanford Health Care patients with malunions or nonunions also may have opportunities to participate in research studies of new treatment approaches not yet available anywhere else.
