Goals of fracture treatment• Prevent fracture and soft tissue complications• Get fracture to heal and in satisfactory position for optimal functional recovery• Intra-articular fracture needs accurate reduction & rigid fixation but non articular fracture of bone require anatomical reduction & stable fixation.• Rehabilitate as early as possible by active & passive exercises.• Restore patient to optimal functional state
