In addition to trauma-trained specialists with extensive experience in treating orthopaedic injuries, we use specialized equipment that allows many of these injuries to be treated using minimally invasive techniques. This often allows for faster healing with less pain and a better ultimate recovery. Without proper treatment, these injuries can lead to premature deterioration of the joint and surrounding bones, pain, stiffness and arthritis.
We offer treatment for fractures that have failed to heal (non-union) or are healing with deformity (mal-union) as well as treating multiple injuries resulting from accidents, falls or other traumas. We have extensive experience with the use of locked plating systems to reconstruct bone fractures due to osteoporosis or fractures at the joint surface. In the case of joints that have been damaged beyond repair, we also offer prosthetic reconstruction.
What is orthopaedic trauma?
Orthopaedic Trauma specializes in the treatment of patients with fractures and post-traumatic bone, muscle, tendon and joint problems. We strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients with complex injuries and fractures. Specific areas of focus include fractures involving the joint surface of the shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle.
