UH Orthopedic Trauma Surgeons Provide Expert Triage and Surgical Repair

An orthopedic traumatic injury is any severe injury affecting your musculoskeletal system, including your bones, muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. Because your musculoskeletal system affects your skeletal support and stability as well as all movement and function, it is critical to have an expert in orthopedic trauma evaluate your injuries. Rather than a generalist, a UH orthopedic trauma specialist can better assess your immediate injuries and how those injuries may affect your long-term bone and joint health.

University Hospitals has the specialized expertise in orthopedic specific trauma necessary for even the most complex situations. We have a dedicated team of orthopedic trauma surgeons ready for any emergency or traumatic injury, including:

  • ATV accidents
  • Biking accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Complex fractures
  • Falls
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Sports injuries

Academic Medical Center Level I Trauma Center Expertise

As an entire system of care, University Hospitals offers both a Level I Trauma Center at UH Cleveland Medical Center and the only Level I Pediatric Trauma Center in Northern Ohio at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. For traumatic injuries at any age or any level of injury, including the most complicated due to multiple injuries, our team can help get you on the road to recovery.

Orthopedic Expertise For Every Level of Injury

University Hospitals has the depth of expertise for every level of injury, including trauma and fracture or more general orthopedic injury care. A traumatic injury can cause immediate pain and concerns, but can also lead to post-traumatic arthritis – a common form of osteoarthritis that can result from any traumatic injury. If orthopedic traumatic injuries are not treated and healed correctly, they can come back in later years to cause additional problems.

Our team at University Hospitals provides every phase of care for optimal recovery – from initial orthopedic traumatic injury diagnosis and treatment to physical therapy and comprehensive rehabilitation. Because we have every level of orthopedic subspecialty care under our system of care, we can get you better, faster.
