Orthopedic trauma is a specialized area of orthopedics 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 orthopedic trauma requires rapid evaluation and treatment of injuries and, in some cases, several substantial injuries on one patient.
At Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, our orthopedic trauma doctors, S. Blake Dowdle, MD, Daniel C. Fitzpatrick, MD, Lyle T. Jackson Jr., MD, Lucas Korcek, MD, Mark E. Mildren, MD, Daniel V. Sheerin, MD, Anna van der Horst, MD, and Brandon G. Wilkinson, MD, have completed training specifically in trauma and have dedicated their practices to this specialized field.
