Bone and Joint Infections

    Overview

    Bone and joint infections can occur when bacteria enter, either through the bloodstream, or often resulting from injury, a skin ulcer or surgery. This type of infection can lead to long-term pain or loss of mobility if not properly treated. The process of diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation for this uncommon type of infection involves a team of physicians from different specialties, working in coordination.
