General Orthopedics & Trauma

"I treat patients with a wide range of bone and joint injuries, including sports injuries and joint replacements. I have a special interest in the treatment of fractures and complex elbow injuries. Through my affiliation with the Legacy Biomechanics Laboratory, I am active in research aiming to improve fracture healing."

"After a bicycle accident when I was nine years old, I needed several surgeries on my left leg.  It took six more months to completely heal. I wasn't sure I'd ever lose the limp to run well enough to play sports with my friends. I am now a sophomore on the school football team. I play basketball and take taekwondo. Thanks Dr. Fitzpatrick and team!" -- Vincent C.
