Level 1 trauma

The Orthopaedic Trauma Service is an integral part of the multispecialty trauma services that provide a Level 1 trauma referral center for Northern California, Eastern Nevada and, Southern Oregon. 

The highest level of care

The trauma service specializes in the treatment of nonunions, malunions and leg-length discrepancies using closed intramedullary shortening, Ilizarov and osteotomy techniques, as well as treatment of pelvic and acetabular malunions.

The service emphasizes early stabilization of fractures and aggressive rehabilitation of victims of major trauma. Specialized surgical techniques include closed intramedullary fixation, combinations of internal and external fixation, and complex fracture treatment of the pelvis, acetabulum, and extremities.
