Orthopaedic Trauma

OrthoWilmington has the only board-certified orthopaedic trauma specialist in coastal North Carolina. Fellowship trained in orthopedic trauma surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, he specializes in the treatment of complex orthopaedic trauma, including:

  • Long bone fractures
  • Complex articular fractures (including pelvic and acetabular fractures)
  • Post-traumatic reconstruction of mal-unions, non-unions and fracture surgery

This expertise allows orthopaedic trauma patients to receive their care locally, at New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Level III Trauma Center. Patients are likely to be at their most vulnerable and emotional immediately after suffering physical trauma, so being able to receive such a high level of care close to home is especially important and appreciated.  

Below are the most common surgeries performed by our trauma specialist:

  • Minimally invasive fracture surgery

  • Fractures and dislocations of both the upper and lower extremities (shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm, hip, upper leg, knee, lower leg, ankle, etc.)

  • Fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum

  • Complex fractures with angular deformities and/or bone defects

  • Poly-trauma patients with orthopaedic injuries

  • Fractures in adolescents, adults and the elderly populations

  • Periprosthetic fractures

  • Insufficiency fractures

  • Complex cases requiring correction of deformity

  • Corrective osteotomies (long bones and pelvic osteotomies)

  • Unhealed fractures including non-unions

  • Malunions

  • Chronic post-partum pelvic pain and/or instability
