As a complement to our level 2 trauma center, Portneuf Medical Center’s trauma team includes an orthopedic traumatolgist. Orthopedic traumatologists care for patients with severe injury to part of the musculoskeletal system often as a result of vehicular and industrial accidents, slips, falls or sports injuries as they offer more advanced orthopedic care for more acute injuries. An injury to the skeletal or muscular system can change a person’s life, function and mobility. Often, these injuries require the unique expertise of an orthopedic trauma physician.
