Our Specialties


Orthopaedic Trauma

World-Renowned Orthopaedic Surgeons

Orthopaedic surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat patients with severe bone, joint, and muscle injuries, including compound fractures, dislocations, and other forms of trauma. These surgeons possess a critical understanding of the musculoskeletal system and can quickly assess and provide medical care for patients with life-threatening injuries. Additionally, these specialists see patients who may have broken a bone or been involved in a traumatic event that wasn’t life-threatening, such as a fall.

At Carrell Clinic, all of our world-renowned leaders are board-certified and fellowship-trained experts within their field of subspecialty as well as fully trained general orthopaedic specialists. Our surgeons are skilled at treating patients with traumatic orthopaedic injuries.
