Orthopaedic Traumatology at USA Health

Motor vehicle accidents, workplace injuries, gunshot wounds and other mishaps can cause serious trauma, which sometimes affects the bones and joints. When patients experience multiple fractures or have compound fractures, it’s important for them to be seen by an orthopaedic traumatologist. Fortunately for individuals along the Gulf Coast of Alabama, USA Health offers orthopaedic traumatology care at University Hospital's Level I trauma center.

Orthopaedic traumatologists treat patients who have or may have experienced trauma to their joints and bones, as well as their muscles, tendons and ligaments—the body’s soft tissues. By addressing these issues early, our specialists can offer excellent chances for positive outcomes. This care means fractures can heal properly and joint surfaces can align properly as they heal.
