SRO Trauma Center
Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Care Team
Nobody wants to think about having an accident or enduring a sudden injury, and when the worst happens SRO’s Trauma Team are the healthcare professionals you will want in your corner. The spectrum of cases treated ranges from patients with a single fracture to those suffering from multiple, life-threatening musculoskeletal injuries. State-of-the-art techniques are used in the treatment of associated injuries to nerves and blood vessels and incidents involving soft tissue loss.
Fellowship trained orthopaedic trauma specialists, Thomas W. Axelrad, MD and Dr. Frederick S. Bennett, provide expert care for patients with severe musculoskeletal injuries and related complications, and in many cases serve as a regional resource for other physicians challenged by these complex orthopaedic cases.
Both acute and chronic conditions frequently managed by the trauma specialists at Santa Rosa Orthopaedics include severe fractures of the upper and lower extremities, including open and complex periarticular injuries, pelvic and acetabular fractures, complex femoral fractures, nonunions and malunions, infections and osteomyelitis.
The orthopaedic trauma team is quick to respond and restore conditions that include fractures and dislocations as well as severe soft tissue injuries caused by trauma events. Common orthopaedic traumatic injuries include femoral and tibial shaft fractures, acetabular and pelvic fractures, spine and spinal cord injuries, hand and upper extremity injuries, and foot and ankle injuries, among many others. Polytraumatized patients are those unique individuals with numerous skeletal and other primary organ system injuries, usually caused by high energy traumatic events. Orthopaedic traumatologists coordinate the orthopaedic portion of the patient’s care with other subspecialties in order to optimize the clinical outcome.
