MEET THE TEAM
Let's fix what hurts
The OrthoIndy Trauma Team is exclusively located at the only Level 1 trauma center on the north side of Indianapolis, St. Vincent Trauma Center.
St.Vincent Trauma Center
In 2012, OrthoIndy transitioned our entire trauma program to St.Vincent Trauma Center. In the beginning of 2016, the St.Vincent Trauma Center became a Level 1 facility.
Our faculty had a personal hand in building the program, and by drawing on everyone’s far reaching experience, created a trauma program described as “the best start up trauma program,” according to the American College of Surgeons. This transition has led us to train one trauma fellow per year rather than two to four to guarantee a richer trauma experience.
Our fellows, on average, participate in 650 to 850 case numbers per year, with the maximum to date being 931 cases.
