drs-with-masksHughston Orthopaedic Trauma Service brings together a team of specialists to treat patients, who have severe musculoskeletal injuries and related complications. Often, with trauma patients, the treatment for any one problem can conflict. with that for another, and life threatening injuries may preclude addressing all of the patient’s problems at once . Hughston orthopaedic traumatologists are adept at treating patients who have suffered multiple injuries, such as fractures, soft tissue injuries, and¬†injuries that occur around a joint.. The presence of multiple injuries can also increase the risk of metabolic complications, such as blood clots, fat embolism, and compartment syndrome. Our orthopaedic traumatologists are also skilled at treating patients, who have fracture complications–nonunions (fractures that fail to heal properly), malunions (fractures that. do not heal in a normal position), fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum (hip), and osteomyelitis (bone infection)–that can be sources of musculoskeletal abnormalities.
