Norton Orthopaedic Care specialists provide emergency orthopaedic care and post-traumatic reconstructive surgery services for patients who have bone, joint or soft tissue injuries due to trauma, such as automobile accidents, industrial accidents or falls.
Orthopaedic trauma care includes everything from repairing simple fractures to treating life-threatening situations with multiple broken bones. Trauma care encompasses nonsurgical methods like external fixation – casts or braces that stabilize an injury – for fractures or dislocations as well as innovative surgical techniques, such as minimally invasive surgery, internal fixation (using pins or screws to stabilize bone), bone graft substitutes and other methods.
Norton Orthopaedic Care specialists provide highly specialized, comprehensive care for traumatic orthopaedic injuries such as:
- Acetabular and pelvic fractures
- Complex femoral fractures
- Foot and ankle injuries
- Hand and upper extremity injuries
- Spine and spinal cord injuries
