Fracture and Trauma Services

At Waterbury Health, our Fracture & Trauma Services are dedicated to treating patients who have suffered traumatic injuries as a result of an accident, fall, or collision.

Most often involving the treatment of broken bones or fractures, the practice of trauma and fracture care requires rapid evaluation and treatment of injuries, in some cases, several substantial injuries on one patient.

Our multidisciplinary team, including emergency medicine specialists and orthopedic surgeons, uses a collaborative approach to develop individualized care plans that help patients return to normal activities as quickly as possible with the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.

Our team of experts treat and provide care for:

  • Sudden and severe musculoskeletal trauma
  • Primary repair of simple fractures
  • Complex pelvic and hip joint (acetabular) fractures
  • Reconstruction for periarticular fractures (fractures around or in joints)
  • 24/7 access to emergency care in orthopedics at Waterbury Hospital
