Trauma and Critical Care

Trauma and critical surgical care encompass a broad scope of care that addresses injuries to the neck, chest, abdomen and extremities. No one anticipates the need for this type of care, but if you suffer a life-threatening injury, you or your loved ones should expect to receive the best possible evaluation and treatment.

Surgical Associates trauma surgeons are skilled in all aspects of intensive care and the various general surgical, thoracic and vascular procedures that may be needed if you are seriously injured.
