Infections of bones and joints

If a germ gets into a bone or joint it can cause an infection. This can happen over the bloodstream, but many infections arise because of injury, a skin ulcer or surgery. The patients treated by the Bone Infection Part include people with infections of:

  • Joint replacements
  • Broken bones
  • Diabetic foot ulcers

These infections can persist, leading to long-term pain, poor mobility and occasionally wound problems. This is much more likely if:

  • The bone has been killed by the infection
  • there is artificial material present (for example, a joint replacement)
  • there is a persistent wound.
  • Acute osteomyelitis
  • Secondary osteomyelitis
  • Chronic osteomyelitis
  • Garres osteomyelitis
  • Brodies osteomyelitis
  • Salmonella osteomyelitis
  • Septic arthritis
  • Gonococcal arthritis
  • Syphilis arthritis
  • Fungal infections
  • Leprosy and orthopaedics
