Medical trauma refers to serious or critical bodily injuries and wounds. Traumatic injuries involving the musculoskeletal system should be evaluated and treated by an orthopedic surgical trauma team trained and experienced in the very latest techniques for repairing these extreme injuries.
The world-renowned trauma surgeons in our Orthopedic Trauma Service represent a wide range of orthopedic specialties. So no matter what the injury, the specialists in our service are available to immediately determine the best treatment for that particular patient and his/her specific injury or injuries. Our highly trained specialists aim to restore function, return the patient to normal activities, and, ultimately, prevent deformity and chronic pain.
Our team repairs not only acute injuries, but also chronic musculoskeletal problems and complications from previous injuries. Treatment plans are highly individualized and often include surgical procedures as well as non-surgical care, such as splinting, bracing, and casting. Rehabilitation is an integral part of each and every plan, as it aids with recovery from acute and chronic injuries.
Our surgeons in the Orthopedic Trauma Service are established leaders in trauma care. In fact, physicians from around the world come to our Trauma Training Center to learn the most advanced principles and techniques related to trauma care. Our physician-scientists also perform research studies in this state-of-the-art facility to determine new approaches for optimizing outcomes for severely injured patients.
