Orthopaedic Trauma Program

The team of specialists with Temple's Orthopaedic Trauma Program has the experience you need and want when you're dealing with a life-changing traumatic injury, when minutes count. Our board-certified orthopaedic trauma surgeons specialize in treating injuries to bones, joints and soft tissues after a trauma. That can mean treating a range of injuries, from simple fractures and torn tendons to compound fractures and complex injuries.

Temple's orthopaedic trauma surgeons are leaders in comprehensive care for orthopaedic injuries following a trauma. We offer advanced care right in Philadelphia, with treatments such as minimally invasive procedures that can help speed recovery with less pain.

Our trauma surgeons also treat complications of fractures. They specialize in advanced treatments for healing problems such as osteomyelitis (an infection of the bone), nonunions (when a fracture doesn't heal) and malunions (when a fracture heals in a deformed position or with a shortened limb).

A Team of Orthopaedic Specialists You Can Trust

Along with fractures and orthopaedic problems, traumatic injuries often include other medical issues that need treatment too. That's why our trauma surgeons work closely with other surgeons and specialists, such as neurosurgeons, general, spine and hand surgeons and intensive care physicians to develop a personalized plan for recovery. From diagnosis to surgery through rehabilitation, Temple's specialists partner to provide comprehensive, healing care.
