Orthopedic trauma is a severe musculoskeletal injury, frequently but not always, caused by an external force, such as a fall or accident. As a fracture specialist, orthopedic trauma cases that Dr. Wood treats include:
Total hip replacements – Total hip replacements replace the hip joint, relieving pain and increasing both the range of motion and mobility. Dr. Wood performs anterior direct hip replacements, which are a minimally invasive approach for total hip replacement.
Total knee replacements – Knee replacements replace the damaged portions, or the entire knee joint, with a metal or plastic alternative. This procedure is designed to relieve pain and allow individuals to return to the activities they love.
