The Orthopedic Trauma service at Ochsner Medical Center provides treatment for patients with severe musculoskelatal injury, including multiple broken bones, compound fractures, fractures near a joint or fractures of the pelvis.  These injuries can be more complex than a simple fracture and are best treated by a highly trained specialist.  Dr. James Mautnter is a fellowship-trained Orthopedic trauma surgeon specializing in the care of these complex injuries.  Together with the trauma care team of a nurse and a physician's assistant, the Orthopedic trauma service is here to serve you when you need it the most.
