My specialty is orthopaedic trauma. When patients have their worst day, when they fall off a roof, are involved in a motor vehicle collision or motorcycle accident, or when they just break a simple bone in a sporting activity, my job is to put those folks back together. I try to restore them back to their normal function that they had prior to that accident.
Most of my patients come through the emergency department, so those are typically patients who have had a very severe injury. However, many of the patients we take care of have a less severe, routine injury such as a slip or a fall or simple fracture. Either way, we are prepared to treat all types of orthopaedic trauma, from the most complex fractures and injuries to the more simple and routine fractures as well.
