Trauma patients include those who may have been injured in auto accidents and other accidents. Often, trauma patients are treated for fractures of the pelvis and spine, long bone fractures in the extremities, amputations, infections, and nerve and tendon injuries. Orthopedic surgeons, who are fellowship-trained in trauma surgery, are involved in the care of all patients with multiple injuries admitted to Barnes-Jewish Hospital and with the vast majority of patients admitted with isolated fractures.
