People who have osteomyelitis have a bone infection. An osteomyelitis bone infection can become quite serious, as any infection in the body can travel through the bloodstream, only to infect and damage other organs. An infection in the bone areas can weaken the bones and expose them to viruses, bacteria and germs.
If you have osteomyelitis, it needs to be diagnosed correctly and fast. A doctor needs to diagnose osteomyelitis to be able to successfully treat this condition. Generally, if you have osteomyelitis, you will need to have a surgical procedure to remove any dead bone in the body.

Failure to Treat – Resulting in Amputation
The condition of osteomyelitis can occur from the staphylococcus bacteria or other types of germs passed between people. If any amount of bacteria gets into your bones, it can do damage to the bone structure of your body. Bacteria finds a way to infiltrate bones through:
- An injury such as a puncture wound near a site of germs
- Germs from one part of the body traveling to another part of the body in the bloodstream
- Surgical procedures where bacteria are introduced by accident to the person’s body
Any time that you are injured by a germ or bacteria and are infected while in the hospital. It is called a hospital-acquired infection. You will need extra days in the hospital because of contracting a hospital-acquired infection while having a surgery scheduled there at the hospital. Also, any time that bacteria damage the bones, there can be circulation disorders that will develop to further damage the bone, or require an amputation of the limb affected by the bacteria.
