Injuries happen when you least expect them, but rest assured: the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine is always ready to respond.
Our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons provide around-the-clock coverage at Central Maine Healthcare emergency rooms, including the Trauma Center at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston – one of three in the entire region equipped to handle traumas.
Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine surgeons work closely with each hospital’s emergency physicians and support staff to respond to serious injuries involving any or all of the following:
- Entire joints
- Soft tissue
Seamless, Coordinated Care
Following initial diagnosis and treatment in the Emergency Department, orthopaedic trauma patients who undergo surgery are frequently transferred to the OICM unit, where they’ll receive our unique Core Connect Care ℠ team approach to care from specialized orthopaedic physicians, nurses, case managers and social workers. That also includes work with our physical therapists, who design custom orthopaedic rehabilitation programs to help ensure a smooth recovery and return to maximum function.
