Orthopedic Trauma

The Memorial Division of Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery consistently delivers leading-edge, comprehensive orthopaedic trauma care and is uniquely qualified to expertly treat some of the most complex, life-threatening orthopaedic injuries.

Led by Daniel B. Chan, MD, one of the only board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic trauma surgeons practicing in south Broward County, our team of highly skilled orthopaedic surgeons has extensive expertise in performing a wide range of orthopaedic interventions for all types of musculoskeletal injuries, from minimally invasive fracture fixation, reconstruction of complex, high-energy fractures and joint replacement.

Our orthopaedic trauma capabilities include:

  • Athletic injuries (fractures from twisting, falling or collisions during sports)
  • Fractures involving the pelvis and acetabulum (hip socket)
  • Peri-articular fractures (fractures involving a joint surface)
  • Peri-prosthetic fractures (fractures around a joint replacement implant)
  • Geriatric fracture care
  • Open, high-energy, complex fractures requiring multiple surgeries (often requiring the use of bone grafting to replace missing bone)
  • Simple hairline fractures (often treated without surgery in a cast or splint)
  • Surgical reconstruction of previously failed fracture surgeries (nonunions and malunions)
  • Total hip replacement (using the minimally invasive anterior approach)

Our team is also on call 24/7 to respond to any acute orthopaedic trauma emergency that presents at Memorial Regional Hospital (a Level 1 trauma center) and is highly qualified to treat patients with varying levels of orthopaedic trauma, including musculoskeletal injuries due to:

  • Car accidents
  • Collisions involving a pedestrian
  • Falls
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Athletic injuries 

For more severely injured patients, we work with specialists across the Memorial Healthcare System, including emergency medicine physicians, trauma surgeons and other critical care specialists, neurosurgeons and plastic surgeons. We often rely on input from our colleagues to best tailor the timing and methods of treatment based on the patient’s condition and severity of illness.

Outpatient Orthopaedic Trauma Clinic

We also accept patients from referring physicians on an outpatient basis. If you are a physician who needs to refer a patient with an acute fracture or other complex orthopaedic trauma condition for specialized care, we are available to evaluate and treat your patients efficiently using the latest diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.
