What is Orthopaedic Trauma?
Orthopaedic trauma injuries affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments anywhere in the body. These injuries can be extremely dangerous, and sometimes even life-threatening or altering, making it vital to visit an experienced surgeon for treatment. Orthopaedic trauma surgeons don’t focus on one specific area of the body, allowing them to treat bone fractures, realign joints or repair damaged tissues to restore functionality anywhere on the patient. These physicians will also be called in to help patients with multiple broken bones, or for fractures in difficult areas near joints, such as the hip, knee, or shoulder.
Along with emergency services and surgical procedures, our surgeons help patients recover from:
- Upper and Lower Extremity Fractures
- Hip Fractures
- Fractures of the Foot and Ankle
- Joint Dislocations
- Treatment of Fracture Non-Union and Mal-Union
- Treatment of Infected Fractures and Osteomyelitis
Our team is also able to provide patients with cast applications, braces, and orthotics to further promote healing after surgery or injury.
