Founded over 40 years ago, Methodist Hospital  is one of the most highly respected and largest full-service orthopaedic practice in the Midwest with over 2800 trauma patients admissions incurred annually. The Trauma Research department consists of 9 full-time orthopaedic trauma surgeons who provide all of the musculoskeletal trauma care. The Trauma department supports 3 trauma fellows in active and highly structured 12 month fellowship program. Each fellow is expected to complete and publish a manuscript as a requirement of the fellowship program. Our research infrastructure consists of a full time research staff including a Trauma Research Director, Manager, and Coordinator. Presently we are active in 2 multicenter sponsored studies and 18 smaller studies. Annually we publish a minimum of 3 peer reviewed manuscripts. Clinically we have an active trauma service with 421 femur fractures, and 534 tibia fractures in the last year. In 2008 admitted 992 patients with an ISS score ≥17. Collectively the orthopaedic trauma research team is dedicated to the advancement of improving patient care.
