Orthopaedic Traumatology Conditions

Patients with acute damage to the musculoskeletal system seek treatment from Concord Orthopaedics trauma surgeons for a wide range of difficult orthopaedic conditions. These include:

  • Complex peri-articular (surrounding the joint) fractures
  • Pelvis and acetabluar fractures (Acetabular is the part of the pelvis that forms the hip joint. Acetabular trauma is damage to the socket of the hip joint but is different than a hip fracture.)
  • Post-traumatic deformity (This is a change in musculoskeletal shape or form after a trauma, injury or illness.)
  • Fracture non-unions and mal-unions (Non-unions refer to the failure of a fractured bone to heal normally and mal-unions are bones that heal in a bad position.)
  • Infections (Bacterial infections are a common source of musculoskeletal abnormalities.)
  • Open fractures (Most of these severe injuries to the bone are emergencies. If the fracture penetrates skin, there is high risk of infection.)
  • Fragility fractures (These fractures are due to osteoporosis and pathological fractures as a result of abnormalities of the bone, e.g. bone softening or cancer.)

To our Patients, Families and Communities,

Your health, welfare & safety are paramount when you come for an appointment at any of our facilities. We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we meet our patient’s needs while doing our part to keep you, our associates, and our communities safe. Effective immediately, the Acute Injury Clinic (AIC), will remain open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The AIC will NOT open on Saturdays.

At this time, the impact to our communities has been minimal and our staff is focused on providing the orthopaedic care our patients expect and deserve. If you have an appointment with us, we respectfully ask that you let us know if you have a fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath in advance of your appointment. Also, if you have recently traveled to or been in close contact with anyone who has traveled outside of New Hampshire, especially to New York State, we ask that you avoid visiting our practice for a period of 14 healthy days.

Thank you for your continued trust in COPA. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to support the health of our patients & employees.

Sincerely,

Ron Chorzewski

CEO
