Hello, I need some explanation regarding a broken femoral bone, injury my husband suffers from. He had an accident on a vacation and even though the doctors said that the recovery is going smoothly, they also sad that he needs a skeletal traction. What kind of procedure is that? Is it something complex?

Well, as far as I can remember, it was nothing that serious. I think that the doctors will apply some sort of weight to his broken leg, on the lower part. This will put his leg in extension and that prevents the bone parts from missing each other in the healing process. It might sound as a bit rough method, but it is very helpful.
