Orthopedic Trauma & Fracture Care in Colorado Springs
Trauma can occur from any injury that endured enough force to cause a fracture or significant damage within the body. Care for simple fractures (such as a transverse, longitudinal or stress fractures) may require only casting or splinting. Common causes of fractures include motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and falls. Care for severe or complex fractures (such as open fractures, pelvic fractures, femoral, tibial, etc.) often require surgical intervention.
