Trauma & Fracture Care
Trauma, fractures, and other accidents can happen to anyone at any time — and the experience can be frightening and debilitating. Some cases of injury can be healed on their own with the help of gentle, non-surgical support. In other cases, surgical treatment is needed. If you or someone you care about recently experienced trauma or fracture, reach out to our team to see an orthopedic specialist at our Portsmouth, NH, or York, ME, location. We will provide the continuum of care you need.
