Osteomyelitis (Bone Infections)
Osteomyelitis is an inflammation of the bone or bone marrow, usually caused by a bacterial infection.
Until recently, osteomyelitis and its treatment have been poorly understood by both the medical community and, in turn, the general public. In this country, only a few centers specialize in the treatment of severe bone infections such as chronic osteomyelitis. Posting the largest case series and the most successful treatment outcomes for this type of bone infection in the world’s literature, our San Diego area orthopedic surgeons who serve patients from Mexico and across the globe, use each advance in technology to maintain and acquire expertise in every domain of modern-day treatment for severe bone and soft tissue infections.
