Trauma is the leading cause of death of persons under the age of 40 in the United States and is defined as an injury caused by physical force – such as a fall or motor vehicle collision. At TraumaONE, we are dedicated to caring for patients during the critical time after a serious injury. Working in conjunction with Parkview Hospital’s Level II Trauma Center, we provide rapid evaluation and highly specialized treatment for patients whose lives and limbs are at risk. A TraumaONE fellowship-trained orthopaedic traumatologist is available at Parkview 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in addition to other ONE surgeons, physician assistants and support personnel.
When it comes to trauma, a team approach is crucial to saving lives and reducing long-term disabilities. That’s why TraumaONE and Parkview are working throughout the region to provide coverage and response that is nationally recognized.
