Understanding the Role of a Trauma Surgeon.

Our dual-board-certified surgeons have extensive experience in creating and improving Level I, II, III and IV trauma centers. Our model provides dedicated coverage of key service lines for the hospital: Trauma, Acute Care Surgery, and Surgical Critical Care. While on-call our surgeons are dedicated to inpatient care and are not distracted by outpatient or administrative tasks. This allows them to be 100% focused on the care of the inpatient, optimizing surgical outcomes.
