The specialists at Montana Orthopedics are skilled in dealing with a comprehensive range of injuries from simple accidents to severe cases of involving trauma and multiple injuries.
Fractures are very common, and they can happen to anyone, often at the most unexpected times. Many injuries are minor fractures that simply require taking it easy for a few weeks. Other fractures are more complex and may require a cast or splint to be worn for an extended period of time. In severe cases additional fixation such as screws may be needed temporarily or permanently.
Any severe injury can benefit from the skill of a trauma specialist. An injury is considered to be traumatic when it involves complicated fractures, multiple fractures, injury to multiple areas, and injuries caused involving falls, impacts, or penetrating objects.
Conditions and injuries may include:
- Complicated fractures and multiple trauma
- Pelvic fractures
- Gunshot wounds
- High impact motor vehicle accidents
