Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling.’ – Anish Mahajan, MD, Chief Medical Officer & Interim CEO at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.”
