Trauma Surgery

There are many different types of Trauma surgery. Dr. Farr specializes in the following procedures:

Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) – Fractures

This is a procedure in which a damaged bone is repaired by realigning the bone and fixing it in place with metal implants, such as screws, plates, or rods. ORIF is often used to treat fractures of the spine, such as those caused by a fall or a car accident.

Femoral Tibial and Intermedullary Rod Placement

This is a surgical procedure that is used to stabilize femoral and tibial fractures. During this procedure, a metal rod is inserted into the center of the bone. This helps to keep the bone in place and allows it to heal properly.

Closed Reduction

This is a non-surgical procedure that is used to realign a broken bone. During closed reduction, the surgeon uses their hands to gently move the bone back into its correct position. Closed reduction is often used to treat fractures of the spine that are not displaced or that are not causing any neurological symptoms.
