Orthopedic Trauma

Mount Sinai Health System orthopedic trauma specialists treat patients who have sustained an injury to the musculoskeletal system, including bones, cartilage, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons of the body. Common injuries you might experience include fractures, ligament tears, tendon tears, and joint dislocations. We diagnose and treat orthopedic trauma at a variety of locations in the New York City area.

Our goal in treating your traumatic orthopedic injury is to get you back to your pre-injury condition: pain free and able to move with ease. To that end, we collaborate with our colleagues to provide you comprehensive and expert care.

What Is Orthopedic Trauma?

Trauma typically refers to an injury caused by some external force. An orthopedic trauma injury can also be the result of a severe fall, a serious accident, or even a violent attack.

Orthopedic Trauma Center

Trauma can affect anyone. It is essential that you have any break, fracture, tear, and dislocation treated by an orthopedic trauma specialist as soon as possible after the injury to ensure that you heal properly.

Treatments

Mount Sinai Health System offers both surgical and non-surgical orthopedic services for repairing your fractures and other trauma injuries. We also repair less extensive injuries with minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery on an outpatient basis.

Chronic Conditions

In addition to treating traumatic injuries when they occur, Mount Sinai Health System orthopedic specialists and surgeons treat any chronic lasting after-effects of traumatic injuries, including:

  • Fractures that did not heal (nonunions) or are delayed in healing
  • Bone or joint conditions resulting from fractures that did not heal in the correct alignment (malunions)
  • Joint deformity from arthritis
  • Infections
