Meet the Team

Penn Trauma and Fracture Service is the largest and most complete program in the Philadelphia region with extensive capabilities for treating all musculoskeletal fractures, traumatic injuries, and related complications.

Penn's team of physicians treats injuries ranging from simple accidents that occur during work, recreational and sports activities to the most severe cases of multiple trauma.

Penn's trauma physicians treat and provide care for issues including:

  • Sudden and severe musculoskeletal trauma
  • Primary repair of simple fractures
  • Complex pelvic and acetabular fractures
  • Reconstruction for periarticular fractures (fractures around or in joints)
  • Long-term rehabilitation for debilitating post-traumatic issues or complications that may arise, including fracture nonunion, malunion, and chronic osteomyelitis

The Penn Trauma Center is a Level 1 regional resource trauma center, accredited by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation. The multidisciplinary team uses a collaborative approach to develop individualized care plans to help patients return to normal activities as quickly as possible with the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation for their particular orthopaedic injury or fracture.
