The Michigan Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Service specializes in the care of the full range of orthopaedic trauma injuries including fractures-dislocations of the pelvis / arms / legs, complex post-injury challenges including fractures that are slow to heal, not healing or have healed out of place. We also treat injured limbs threatened by infection or loss of tissue (including short limbs). Our team will provide you with individualized care from the office to the operating room, if needed, and back to your home and community. Our expert surgeons have over 30 years of experience treating “simple” fractures as well as the most complex injuries in patients from around the region, US and the world. They have advanced their field as leaders through the likes of the US Bone and Joint Initiative, Orthopaedic Trauma Association, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons; have educated thousands of students, residents and surgeon-peers through schools of medicine and foundations such as AO Trauma; have published in high-impact journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journals of the American Medical Association, Lancet; have received research funding from the likes of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and AO Foundation International; and have volunteered their time and efforts locally and internationally to those with limited access to expert care. Regionally, we are working together to improve fracture care knowledge and outcomes through the MOTR Collaborative. Right here at home, we can help you, a family member or someone you know with:
- Fragility Fractures (from weak or fragile bones) - please visit our fragility Fracture Clinic page here.
- Pelvis and Acetabulum (hip socket) fractures and dislocations
- Upper extremity fractures from the shoulder (including scapula and clavicle), through the arm-elbow-forearm and down to the wrist (including distal radius) including those with associated dislocations
- Lower extremity fractures from the hip, through the thigh-knee-leg and down to the foot (including calcaneus and “Lisfranc”) including those with associated dislocations
- Fractures that are slow to heal (delayed unions), won’t heal (nonunions), healed crookedly or in the wrong place (malunions)
- Injuries that have left you with bone loss, short limb or risk of limb loss
- Bone infections from injury
We are happy to provide injury-specific advice (including second opinions) as well as individualized surgical solutions.
