Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone itself. It is an uncommon condition, but it should be taken seriously when it occurs. Symptoms of bone infections develop slowly, so the condition often goes unnoticed until it is severe. If you experience consistent tenderness in a specific bone, consult a doctor immediately.
Effective treatment requires a quick and powerful antibiotic response. Bone infections spread quickly and, if not treated effectively by an infectious disease expert like Dr. Serge Lartchenko, may lead to major tissue loss or amputation.
Untreated bone infections hamstring the rest of the body’s immune system and leave your body weakened. It’s not uncommon to be unable to do your favorite activities as your body remains constantly fatigued. Fortunately, there are more treatment options than ever, and few know them better than Texas Infectious Disease Institute.
