It is very important to that osteomyelitis is treated on time to eliminate the infection and prevent the development of chronic infection. If chronic infection develops, it may lead to severe permanent deformities. There are many treating options. Antibiotics are prescribed as initial treatment to get rid of bacteria in the bloodstream that may re-infect the bone. The objective of treating osteomyelitis is to eliminate the infection and prevent the development of chronic infection. Chronic osteomyelitis can lead to permanent deformity and chronic problems, so it is important to treat the disease as soon as possible. Surgeries are performed in well-established bone infections. During the surgery, the destroyed bone is scraped out. Surgery is not recommended in case of spinal osteomyelitis. Acute osteomyelitis is usually well treated but there could be problems with chronic osteomyelitis. Chronic osteomyelitis are sometimes resistant to treatment and then more drastic measures may be needed.
