Orthopedic injury and trauma
Norton Orthopedic Care specialists provide emergency orthopedic care and post-traumatic reconstructive surgery services for patients who have bone, joint or soft tissue injuries due to trauma, such as car accidents, industrial accidents and falls.
Orthopedic trauma care includes everything from repairing simple fractures to treating life-threatening situations with multiple broken bones. Trauma care includes nonsurgical methods such as external fixation – casts and braces – to stabilize fractures and dislocations, as well as surgery. Norton Orthopedic Care offers innovative surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, internal fixation (using pins or screws to stabilize bone), bone graft substitutes and other methods.
