Trauma is a specialized area of orthopaedics dedicated to treating patients who have suffered traumatic injuries as a result of an accident, fall, or collision.
Most often involving the treatment of broken bones or fractures, the practice of orthopaedic trauma requires rapid evaluation and treatment of injuries, in some cases, several substantial injuries on one patient.
At The Bone & Joint Center, our orthopaedic trauma doctors have completed training specifically in trauma and have dedicated their practices to this specialized field.
With this advanced training, our trauma doctors have the experience and expertise to assess and treat complex trauma injuries such as non-healing fractures, malaligned fractures, pelvic fractures, as well as providing tertiary trauma care.
When it comes to trauma care, our doctors are focused on providing the quickest, safest way to treat your injury while reducing the potential for long-term disabilities.
