Orthopedic Trauma Services We Offer

A sudden traumatic injury, including a broken or fractured bone, can happen to anyone, despite age, gender, or activity level. Often caused by an accident, such as a motor vehicle collision or a fall, trauma comes unexpectedly and can cause severe pain and damage to the body. Not only this, but sometimes, you could experience a complication following a traumatic injury, such as an infection, bone healing crooked, or painful hardware.

At MedStar Orthopaedic Institute, which is located throughout the Washington, D.C. region, our fellowship-trained orthopedic trauma specialists provide fracture care for not only acute fractures but also any and all problems that come up after you’ve broken a bone. Our team of orthopedic trauma specialists are dedicated to getting you back to your regular life, maximizing your recovery, and helping you feel good again.

Our orthopedic trauma specialists are:

  • Specially trained to deal exclusively with trauma, including broken bones, bones that heal incorrectly, infections, and complex fractures
  • Knowledgeable and experienced in using the latest technologies and address your personal needs for any kind of bone break
  • Specialists in minimally invasive procedures, which help lower your recovery time and reduce the chance of infection
  • Able to provide patients with access to a sophisticated rehabilitation program to give you the best possible outcome

We are a multidisciplinary network, home to leaders in a wide range of specialties. Our doctors routinely coordinate continuing care with other specialists within our network on behalf of our patients whenever needed, including geriatric care, plastic surgery, and therapy from the nearby MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital. We can conveniently provide you additional supplemental services including:

  • Occupational therapy
