Responding to injuries caused by an accident or fall or other traumatic event demands a fast, but thorough diagnosis and treatment plan. It’s no surprise that Orthopedic Trauma and Fracture Care is a distinct subspecialty in orthopedics.

Our team consists of fellowship trained and board-certified orthopedic surgeons who are experienced in emergency care and highly skilled in treating traumatic fractures, dislocations and soft tissue injuries. We treat a full continuum of cases, from simple fractures to the most complex and severe injuries. To schedule an appointment, call 913-588-1227 or request your appointment online.

We have access to the most modern and sophisticated diagnostic techniques and tools. Through our multi-disciplinary approach, we can also integrate with trauma physicians from other specialties within the hospital including general surgeons, trauma surgeons, plastic surgeons, rehabilitation and other medical specialists.

Orthopedic Trauma care at The University of Kansas Hospital is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Rehabilitation is enhanced by skilled and certified physical and occupational therapists on site in the same facility. Our goal is to get you back on your feet and in optimal condition in the least amount of time.
