AOC Trauma is the only fully comprehensive trauma team using advanced techniques and fixation methods to allow for earlier weight-bearing and quicker rehabilitation.
Orthopaedic trauma involves fixation strategies from wrist to shoulders and pelvis to toes. Dr. Russell Goode is one of only 8 Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Trauma surgeon in Alabama and the only Orthopaedic Trauma surgeon in the Mobile nonacademic hospitals. Our team also specializes in the correction of fractures that healed in a bad position or have failed to heal at all.
The AOC Trauma team handles both the acute injury as well as preventing future fractures through our Fracture liaison service staffed by the only National Osteoporosis Foundation Advanced Certified Bone Health Specialist, Sarah Goode. Repeat fractures occur up to 89% of the time if osteoporosis is left untreated and unfortunately treatment occurs less than 25% of the time after a fracture.
