What is Orthopedic Trauma

The term orthopedic trauma describes many different severe injuries affecting the joints, bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Normally, orthopedic trauma is experienced from a sudden accident that needs immediate medical attention. Orthopedic trauma cases can range from a simple fracture to a serious life-threatening injury with multiple areas of your body requiring repair.

Call 911 if you need immediate medical attention. We are available for future appointments at  866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743).
