Trauma

Orthopedic trauma is a severe injury to part or multiple parts of the musculoskeletal system, often as the result from a sudden accident which requires immediate medical attention. Trauma injuries can range from low energy fractures (often in elderly patients) to multiple injuries such as those caused by a road traffic accident. Bone and joint infections can also require emergency treatment.

The expert team at DFP understand just how life-altering a traumatic event, like a car accident or major fall, can be. Our physicians work hard to help patients recover from their physical injuries as fully as possible. Our surgeons are trained and experienced in handling the most difficult orthopedic trauma injuries ranging from complicated fractures including pelvic and acetabular (hip) fractures to non-healing fractures of the extremities. We know that recovery isn’t complete after emergency surgery, therefore we provide follow-up care, respond to complications, and work to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients.
