What We Do
The faculty within the Trauma team are committed to educating students, residents and fellows in the treatment of all facets of traumatic injury. Training topics associated with this group includes:
- Fracture care
- Treatment of nonunions (bone not healing)
- Treatment of malunions (bone healing improperly)
- Pelvis and acetabulum (hip joint) surgery
- Treatment for infected fractures and osteomyelitis
- Soft tissue reconstructions
- Bone grafting
Our faculty are actively involved in ongoing research efforts. Visit our department's Research section for more information.
Our team treats problems related to the bones, joints and soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) following trauma. The service is particularly involved with the repair of fractures or other major musculoskeletal injuries and often deals with more severe or harder-to-treat injuries such as polytraumatic injury with multiple fractures, fractures associated with significant soft tissue injury, complex intra-articular fractures and complex pelvic and acetabular fractures.
