The UCSF Orthopedic Trauma Service provides expert care for all aspects of traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, including inpatient and outpatient orthopedic surgical care, rehabilitation and orthotics and prosthetics. Our surgeons are board certified with fellowship training and experience in treating these conditions. We are leaders in our field through our work with patient care, research and education.

We also collaborate with Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to treat various combined bone and soft tissue problems and to achieve improved outcomes and fewer complications.

Our orthopedic traumatologists accept local, regional, national and international patient transfers for those requiring a higher level of trauma care.
