What Is Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Care?

Orthopaedic trauma care involves the treatment of fractures which occur at the same time as other injuries. This type of injury often results from an accident, such as a fall or car accident. In many cases of orthopaedic trauma, the patient will be brought to a trauma center so that all of his or her injuries can be addressed right away. So, Rothman Orthopaedic Institute’s Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Care team works closely with the regions best trauma centers to provide immediate, expert care.

Other orthopaedic trauma cases involve the management of “problem fractures.” These are fractures which have not healed well and need additional treatment.

The Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Care team at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute treats a wide variety of trauma and fracture care conditions, including:

  • Bone infections

  • Fragility fractures (geriatric orthopaedics)

  • Pelvic and acetabular fractures

  • Periarticular fractures

  • Periprosthetic fractures

  • Post-surgical problem fractures, including nonunions and malunions.
