Trauma & Fractures
Quality Orthopedic Trauma Care
Motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and falls are some of the leading causes of bone fractures and other orthopedic trauma. Depending on the severity, some fractures may require only casting or splinting, while others may need surgical intervention. Trauma can even be severe enough to tear ligaments, tendons, or cartilage, where diagnostic imaging and a well-trained orthopedic surgeon are integral to getting you back to normal.
