Orthopedic trauma involves a severe injury to the muscles, joints, ligaments bones and soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system. Such injuries are often the result of an accident, such as a motor vehicle accident, and require immediate attention from an orthopedic trauma surgeon.
Orthopedic trauma surgeons are trained in the treatment of fractured bones and can realign joints that have been dislocated due to an accident. They work closely with emergency medicine specialists to provide coordinated treatment of acute injuries. After surgery, they work with physical and occupational therapists to develop comprehensive rehabilitation plans so their patients can return to a full and active life.
AnMed Health’s orthopaedic trauma team specializes in the treatment of:
Fractures of the arms and legs.
Fragility fractures from osteoporosis or metabolic bone disease.
Reconstruction of the hips and pelvis.
Complications from fracture treatment, such as mal-union (healed fracture deformities) and non-union (unhealed fractures).
Patients with multiple fractures.
These are very serious and challenging injuries to treat, which is why you need a highly trained, board-certified orthopaedic trauma surgeon if you are ever in a traumatic accident.
