NorthShore's dedicated trauma team includes fellowship-trained, board certified orthopedic trauma surgeons, all of whom are exclusively dedicated to the highest quality care of individual patients. Our trauma team is backed by the latest technology and sophisticated resources at NorthShore Hospitals. Evanston Hospital is a licensed Level I Trauma Center, while Glenbrook and Skokie Hospitals are Level II Trauma Centers.
Our experienced trauma surgeons care for patients of all ages from children through centenarians, and our program treats more hip fractures than any other facility in the area. We take a comprehensive approach to patient care and work closely with specialists in bone density and bone health, offering special expertise in the care of long bone fractures.
A monthly trauma conference held at Evanston Hospital supports a multidisciplinary collaborative approach to care, with specialists in trauma, emergency medicine, anesthesia, social services and more coming together to ensure continued quality outcomes for patients.
Orthopaedic trauma specialists at NorthShore take a pro-active stance in patient care and work collaboratively with other surgical staff and related disciplines to maintain rapid response and optimal treatment aimed at returning patients to the best level of post-injury function as quickly as possible.
Education is an important component of the trauma program and the state-of-the-art NorthShore Center for Simulation and Innovation (NCSI) provides exceptional training opportunities for residents and physicians.
NorthShore's orthopaedic trauma experts are recognized leaders in the growing field, and are active in national organizations.
