In every community there is a 24/7 need to treat patients with fractures and other orthopaedic injuries. Central Maine Orthopaedics (CMO) works with both major hospitals in the Lewiston-Auburn area as well as hospitals in outlying areas to provide emergency orthopaedic surgery coverage.
Central Maine Medical Center (CMMC) is a Level II Trauma Center and one of just three regional trauma centers providing care for the most complex traumas in Maine and parts of New Hampshire.
As members of a multidisciplinary team of specialists who make up CMMC’s Trauma Program, CMO surgeons play a critical role in providing emergency and follow-up care to patients with orthopaedic injuries.
The entire team includes LifeFlight of Maine medical services, the CMMC Emergency Department, the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine, CMO and the CMMC Trauma Program.
CMO surgeon David G. Brown, M.D., serves as the Medical Director of CMMC’s Orthopaedic Trauma Service and is also on the Maine EMS Trauma Advisory Committee.
