At Casper Orthopedics, our fellowship-trained trauma and fracture care doctors are the experts in assessing and treating traumatic injuries.
Orthopedic trauma and fracture care doctors are focused on treating patients who have been involved in an accident or have suffered another kind of traumatic injury, like a fall. These injuries usually involve fractures and/or broken bones, which require immediate evaluation and treatment in order to avoid further injury or damage.
When Should You Visit a Trauma & Fracture Care Doctor?
It's important to be aware of the specific issues surrounding your pain so you can tell your doctor specifically what you are experiencing. Sharing this information with your doctor can help him or her better understand what might be causing your pain and what treatments to offer. Here are some common symptoms that patients with traumatic injuries experience:
- Affected area is deformed
- Affected area is red and swollen
- Bruising and tenderness around the affected area
- Pain that progressively gets worse
- Severe pain when moving the affected joint
- Severe pain when standing or walking
If you have any of these symptoms or are experiencing another type of pain, you may have one of the following medical conditions:
- Acetabular fracture
- Malunion fracture
- Multiple fractures or broken bones
- Nonunion fracture
- Pelvis fracture
- Traumatic sports injury
To treat your traumatic injury, our trauma doctors will exhaust all conservative treatment options before recommending surgery. Please be assured that if trauma surgery is necessary, our trauma surgeons use state-of-the-art technology to perform the latest surgical procedures.
Our trauma surgeons understand that a traumatic injury can dramatically alter your daily lifestyle and are dedicated to getting you back to the activities you love.
