Complex and/or multiple injuries to the musculoskeletal system caused by trauma require the special skills of an orthopedic trauma surgeon.
These severe, sometimes life-threatening injuries can be caused by industrial accidents, vehicle crashes, falls, crushing blows, weapons or explosions. Injuries can include shattered bones and joints, plus fractures and dislocations in the pelvis, shoulder, hip, arms and legs.
Because trauma often includes severe and related complications to several areas of the body, our orthopedic trauma surgeons may work closely with neurosurgeons, reconstructive surgeons, hand surgeons, and podiatrists. Together as needed, they assess and repair the damage, and are dedicated to providing exceptional care from the time of injury through rehabilitation and recovery.
