Program Director: Jeffrey Dobyns, M.D.

Trauma and FractureOrthopaedic surgeons offer diagnosis, surgical and nonsurgical treatment for a wide range of fractures, sprains, strains and traumatic injuries in children and adolescents. The team focuses on the operative and nonoperative treatment of traumatic injuries in children.

Common fractures may include upper extremity injuries, such as forearm or fractures, hand fractures; clavicle, humerus, femur, tibia/fibula, or foot and ankle fractures. Dislocations often treated are shoulder, elbow, wrist, finger, ankle or hip. To learn more about fractures, click here.
