Why Choose Cooper for Orthopaedic Trauma Care?

Patients and families in the South Jersey community choose Cooper for orthopaedic trauma services because of our:

  • Expertise: We are the only trauma center in South Jersey with fellowship-trained orthopaedic traumatologists. All orthopaedic surgeons are trained to treat musculoskeletal injuries (injuries that affect the muscles, bones, tendons, blood vessels, nerves, or other soft tissues). However, our traumatologists have a higher level of expertise to handle complex injuries.
  • Experience in reconstructive trauma surgery: Sometimes, orthopaedic surgery isn’t successful in correcting the effects of trauma, deformities, or other musculoskeletal problems. Our specialists have particular experience correcting injuries that aren’t healing effectively or weren’t set properly.
  • Innovative surgical options: Our skilled doctors stay up-to-date on orthopaedic research and practices. As a result, they are proficient in performing the latest surgical techniques for patients with complex fractures and post-traumatic conditions.
  • Team approach: At Cooper, a team of experts – such as surgeons, traumatologists, and other trauma professionals – works together for your benefit. This team collaborates on each patient’s unique circumstances, ensuring you receive the highest level of care.
  • Care coordination: Cooper’s orthopaedic trauma team uses carefully coordinated evaluation and treatment protocols. These steps help patients receive the best care, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
