5 Year Old Broken Femur

Recommended Posts

Hi Dr. Mark,

I've been having some sharp pains down by my knee when walking down flights of stairs and suspect it's the hardware. I also have a great deal of endurance pain in my quadricep during long stints of snowboarding activity. The calcification looks somewhat significant on the front & inside of the bone in the area of the break.

What do you think?

A careful physical examination of the knee will determine if the pain is hardware related. Squeezing on the area with the screws will be tender if hardware is the offending agent.

A concurrent knee problem is probably more likely.

Quadriceps area pain could easily be related to those exuberant spurs that have occurred during healing. I would probably remove them.
