What Is an Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon?

An orthopedic trauma surgeon is a highly specialized doctor who treats patients with broken bones. These injuries can happen due to a variety of reasons – high speed car accident, sports injury, or even a ground level fall, such as geriatric or pathological fractures. Traumatic injuries could lead to broken bones, misalignments and malunions.
