Pikeville Medical Center’s prestigious Orthopedic trauma Surgeons are dedicated to providing specialty care close to home.
Orthopedic trauma is a branch of orthopedic surgery specializing in problems related to the bones, joints, and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) of the entire body following trauma.
Orthopedic trauma is a severe injury to part of the muscular and skeletal system and often the result of a sudden accident requiring immediate medical attention. While not all orthopedic trauma is life-threatening, it is life-altering. Your choice of doctors is extremely important.
PMC’s Jeffery Chad Martin, DO, and John Riehl, MD, are both board-certified in orthopedic surgery. The two provide the region unique expertise to treat orthopedic injuries covering simple isolated fractures to severe life-threatening accidents with multiple broken bones.
“My goals for my practice revolve around one thing, and that is to deliver excellent care to patients and the community that I serve. I came to PMC because I believe that PMC is committed to providing top tier patient care by empowering physicians to make individualized decisions for and with their patients. I have seen a genuine commitment from PMC unlike anywhere else in the country in this regard, which I believe has and will continue to make PMC a preeminent medical center in the United States,” said Dr. Riehl.
He says, ultimately, he hopes to further the research and knowledge of the medical profession to have a positive impact on the way patients and injuries are treated throughout the world to provide quality care to patients.
