At Advanced Orthopedic Center, we understand that accidents happen. Whether playing a contact sport, fooling around with friends, or running errands for the day, it’s not uncommon for men and women of all ages to find themselves in a situation in which they break a bone.
A traumatic orthopedic injury is a severe injury that affects one or more bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, or musculoskeletal tissues. This can include anything from breaking a leg to dislocating a shoulder. Orthopedic trauma can occur anywhere and at any time. Common situations our patients find themselves in when obtaining a traumatic orthopedic injury include car accidents, sports accidents, slipping and falling, work accidents, and in-home accidents.
Our skilled, board-certified orthopedic surgeons are available to assess and treat your orthopedic trauma as soon as you need help. We are conveniently located in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and Venice, Florida, and proudly serve the patients in the greater Southwest Florida area.
