Orthopedic Trauma

Accidents happen!

When they happen to you, our team of orthopedic specialists is there to help you get back to life. Our practitioners have extensive experience in fracture management and trauma care. Whether you break a bone, twist an ankle or dislocate a joint, your care typically starts with the Emergency Room or Primary Care Doctor. Our staff works closely with these providers to guide your care.

Many of these injuries do not need surgery and can be treated successfully with splints, casts, braces and physical therapy. Once our providers have talked to you, examined your injury and compiled all of the available studies, we work with your primary care doctor to devise a treatment plan that best suits you. We have on-site X-Ray as well as instant access to all studies within the CDH system to assist in diagnosing your problem. We also have a full rehabilitative program so that you can begin the healing process immediately.

General Orthopaedics

Orthopedic trauma is a branch of orthopedic surgery specializing in problems related to the bones, joints, and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) of the entire body following trauma.

The main goal of this specialized area in orthopedics is the healing of the fractured bones, as well as restoring the anatomic alignment of the joint surfaces to allow for recovery and return to maximum function of the injured body part.

Treatment Options

Many orthopedic traumas do not need surgery and can be treated successfully with splints, casts, braces and physical therapy.

Once our providers have talked to you, examined your injury and compiled all of the available studies, we work with your primary care doctor to devise a treatment plan that best suits you.

We have on-site X-Ray as well as instant access to all studies within the Cooley-Dickinson Hospital system to assist in diagnosing your problem. We also have a full rehabilitative program so that you can begin the healing process immediately.

Nonsurgical Treatment of Trauma Injuries

Some fractures and dislocations, particularly related to the clavicle, scapula, humerus, wrist, hand, and foot, can be treated nonoperatively. Depending on the severity of the fracture, your physician may treat the injury nonsurgically through an external fixation method. This method involves the use of splints, casts, braces, and other devices on the outside of the injury to stabilize the fracture.

Surgical Treatment of Trauma Injuries

An internal fixation method is when a physician performs minor surgery to place pins, wires, screws, and plates on the bone to stabilize it. Severe injuries may require more complex surgical procedures including bone grafting, limb lengthening, and complex reconstruction.
