Trauma & Fracture Care

Serving Patients Throughout Orange County

The trauma and fracture orthopedic surgeons at Newport Orthopedic Institute offer expert care for all aspects of traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, including inpatient and outpatient orthopedic surgical care and rehabilitation. We provide expert orthopedic trauma care for patients with complex fractures throughout the body as well as treating nonunions (fractures that do not heal post-operatively), malunions (improper alignment after a fracture) and in correcting orthopedic deformities. All inpatient surgical procedures are performed at either Hoag Orthopedic Institute or Hoag Hospital Newport Beach.

What is Orthopedic Trauma?

Every bone in the human body is susceptible to a fracture, this is especially the case as we get older and degenerative joint disease sets in or if a patient suffers a traumatic injury or undergoes a severe life-threatening accident with multiple broken bones.

Orthopedic trauma is a branch of orthopedic surgery specializing in severe injury to part of the musculoskeletal system, and often the result of a traumatic accident which requires immediately emergency care. Not all orthopedic trauma is life-threatening, it does involve complex injuries to bone, joints and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) throughout the entire body. While many fractures can be treated by general orthopedic surgeons, some can benefit from fracture specialists such as Newport Orthopedic Institute’s trauma and fracture care team. The main goal of this specialized team is the healing of the fractured bones, as well as restoring the anatomic alignment of the joint surfaces to allow for recovery and return to maximum function and movement of the injured body part.

Our highly-experienced physicians utilize many leading-edge techniques including minimally invasive surgery and advanced external fixation. The latest in bone graft substitutes and bone-forming proteins are often used to assist in the reconstruction of bones that have not healed.

Types of Trauma and Fracture Injuries & Conditions

Our bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and other tissues make-up the structure of our musculoskeletal system, which is highly susceptible to damage caused by trauma from an accident, injury or fall. Traumatic events such as car accidents, sports injuries or falls often involve a direct blow or twisting of a specific body part, causing pain, swelling, inflammation or other serious complications.
