Orthopedic Trauma Services | MedStar Health

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, patients sometimes experience complications following a traumatic injury, such as an infection, a bone healing crooked, or painful hardware.

At MedStar Health, our fellowship-trained orthopedic trauma specialists provide fracture care not only for acute fractures but also for any and all problems that come up after you’ve broken a bone.
