When to See an Orthopedic Trauma Specialist

Orthopedic trauma is a severe injury to the bones, joints, muscles, or connective tissue – sometimes accompanied by serious injuries to the brain, spinal cord, or other organs. Orthopedic trauma specialists have received training in the field of orthopedic surgery with a specialized focus on the treatment of fractured bones and realigning joints, in order to promote the safe recovery and return of functionality to injured body parts.

Orthopedic trauma specialists are unique because of the knowledge they have about the anatomy of the human body. They understand how to mend complex injuries so you can heal quickly and focus on the things you enjoy most about life. When an injury or traumatic event affects the bones, joints or soft tissues, orthopedic trauma surgeons are best equipped to handle the problem.

Following a traumatic bone injury, many patients are unsure what type of doctor to see. Emergency room physicians can help with the immediate consequences of the injury. However, any needed surgeries or longer term follow-up care are best handled by orthopedic specialists. An accident or serious injury is frightening. It is important to know you are in good hands with orthopedic surgeons and other professionals who can help you heal.

If a traumatic injury is keeping you from living the life you love, book an appointment for an in-depth evaluation and a personalized treatment recommendation.
