Refractory osteomyelitis is a recurrent case of osteomyelitis.

This patient has recurring or refractory osteomyelitis of his lower jaw.

Osteomyelitis is a fancy word for bone infection and refractory osteomyelitis can become a problem if untreated.

As we discussed on our osteomyelitis page, this is a bone infection caused by bacteria or other germs and can originate in or around a bone or travel to a bone through the bloodstream. Bone infections are most often caused by staphylococcus bacteria, but they can also be caused by a fungus or other germs.

In the case of refractory osteomyelitis, the infection keeps coming back, but it can be successfully treated at Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine.

See Dr. Ruben’s video on and how we treat it successfully here at Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine in southeastern Michigan.
