The Comprehensive Fracture Program was developed to meet the growing need for specialized orthopaedic care within the community. It is based on a multidisciplinary team approach to address the unique medical and social issues facing patients and their families. Each patient in our Comprehensive Fracture Program is managed by a multidisciplinary team including orthopaedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, specialized nurses, case managers and physical and occupational therapists. These experienced professionals work together to create care plans that best manage the care of fracture patients from surgery to rehabilitation.
