Orthopaedic Trauma

Trauma DoctorThe impact of a violent, high-energy collision or other traumatic event can cause severe damage to the musculoskeletal system. What’s more, the effects of orthopaedic trauma can be extremely painful and debilitating–often lasting for months, years and even a lifetime. Expert care must be provided promptly to help the patient recover and enjoy a high quality of life.

Our multidisciplinary team of specialists encompasses specialists from orthopaedic trauma, plastic surgery, neuromuscular surgery, vascular surgery and radiology. We offer sophisticated diagnostic and treatment options for traumatic injuries to the musculoskeletal system.

Our surgeons treat mild to severe forms of orthopaedic trauma involving the pelvis, hip, acetabulum, and upper and lower extremities, as well as ligament and tendon tears, joint dislocations and soft tissue injuries. They also concentrate on the effective treatment of complications resulting from orthopaedic trauma–collarbone fractures that do not heal, crushed bone, multiple orthopaedic trauma, osteomyelitis and serious bone defects. In addition, specialists provide skeletal realignment and stabilization, and post-traumatic reconstruction.
