Fixing Complex and Simple Fractures

Is it a bone-crushing car accident? Or a simple fall? The answer to either question is the same: Trust the fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons at Georgia Regents Medical Center.

We are expert “fracture fixers”—skilled at knitting together the most complex injuries, which means we can take care of the straightforward ones too.

Region’s Only Level I Trauma Center

Level I trauma centers meet or exceed national standards for specialty expertise in caring for people after a motor vehicle crash, falls, violence, sports- or job-related injuries.

Because Georgia Regents Medical Center is the region’s Level I (highest level) trauma center, our specialty expertise in trauma and fractures is the highest in the region: For example, we are the only hospital in the region with an orthopedic surgeon specially trained to handle complex pelvic and hip socket (acetabular) surgeries. Other hospitals refer their complex cases to us.

Treatments

Our orthopedic surgeons care for any broken bone or bone issue in the body, including:

  • Pelvic fractures
  • Hip socket (acetabular) fractures
  • Surgical preservation of the hip for adults and adolescents with abnormal formations of the hip socket, including dysplasia or impingement, that can cause pain and early arthritis
  • Osteoporosis-related fractures
  • Limb length inequality surgery
  • Limb salvage, in the case of devastating injuries
  • Hip and knee reconstruction, or joint replacement
  • Bone infection or crooked bone after an initial fracture
  • Advanced fixation techniques for general broken bones (hip, spine, arms, legs)
