Our team is specialty-trained to treat trauma.
Orthopaedic trauma is a sub-specialty of orthopaedics, in which doctors specialize in problems related to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments of the entire body – specifically after traumatic injuries to multiple areas of the musculoskeletal system. However, in the simplest terms, it’s the treatment of a severe injury caused by an external force, like a car accident, fall, sporting event, natural disaster, or even an episode of physical violence.
There are many different types of orthopaedic trauma, but the goal of our specialized surgeons is always the same. From hairline fractures to complete breaks, we can make recommendations that result in the best possible outcomes – promoting an effective recovery and a quick return of functionality.
Some of the most common injuries treated by our orthopaedic trauma team include:
- Closed fractures (broken bone that doesn’t break the skin)
- Geriatric Hip Fracture
- Open fractures (broken bone that does break the skin)
- Stress fractures (Small, hairline crack in the bone caused by overuse)
- Dislocation (A joint forced out of position)
- Overuse injuries
To offer such comprehensive care, our experts have a unique knowledge of the human body. And they’d have to, in order to treat almost every bone within it. Those who specialize in orthopaedic trauma have a complete understanding of general orthopaedics, in addition to being hyper-focused on treating fractured bones and realigning joints.
To do so, we offer surgical and nonsurgical services, including minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery on an outpatient basis. Other common treatment options include:
- Bone grafting
- Deformity correction
- Fracture stabilization
- Joint fusion
- Joint replacement
- Limb lengthening
- Minimally invasive surgery for broken bones
- Osteomyelitis treatment
- Soft tissue reconstruction
To help yourself heal properly, see a specialist. After an injury, all breaks, fractures, tears and dislocations should be treated as soon as possible.
