Emergency Orthopedic Care at the region's only Level 1 Trauma Center
As the only level 1 trauma center in western Massachusetts, Baystate Medical Center is ready to respond to a variety of medical conditions, from life-threatening to less urgent. Our orthopedic trauma surgeons are specialists in treating trauma injuries caused by auto accidents, gunshot wounds, industrial disasters, falls, and more. Our multidisciplinary team understands how important it is to address the overall needs of our patients from the beginning of your care.
While Baystate's trauma surgeons give highest priority to life-threatening injuries, we consider your total state, including less urgent conditions, and create a complete plan for your care. For example, a hand or leg injury may not need immediate attention, but if left unattended, it could result in disability or discomfort as you recover.
For this reason, Baystate Trauma Services calls in orthopedic trauma surgeons to manage and treat secondary injuries along with the life-threatening ones.
