Our orthopedic surgeons perform trauma surgery for crush injuries and bone fractures to the foot and leg. Getting the right care at the right time is critical for your health. When possible, orthopedic surgeons use minimally invasive surgery. With this type of procedure, your surgeon uses small incisions, which may lead to a shorter recovery and less pain.
