Level 1 Trauma

You are here

At The Bone & Joint Center our surgeons provide expert care for all aspects of traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, including inpatient and outpatient orthopaedic surgical care and rehabilitation. Through the Albany Medical Center, we are the only providers of Level 1 Trauma care for a radius of over 150 miles. We are experts at treating the most seriously injured patients with complex fractures and injuries.

Our approach is individualized and comprehensive as we assist patients and their families manage the every step in their treatment, from therapy to education. Our compassionate care extends to the entire person—not just his or her injuries.
