As Pinellas County’s only trauma center, Bayfront orthopaedic surgeons see a broad spectrum of traumatic injuries and provide expert clinical care for trauma patients from all over West Central Florida.
We are dedicated to using our outstanding clinical expertise and compassion to meet the needs of all our patients and their loved ones.
There are different phases of care that a patient goes through when entering a hospital with an orthopaedic injury. Most often, patients enter the hospital through the Emergency Department and then go to surgery, intensive care or the inpatient orthopaedic/trauma nursing unit. The phases of care will depend on when the injury occurred, where the injury is on the body and the injury’s severity.
A hospital case manager will help you and your loved ones identify the level of care that is right for you and coordinate the transition from one setting to the next, such as outpatient rehabilitation or home health. Bayfront takes a whole team approach to trauma cases of all levels of severity and is here to get you back to life.
