In every community there is a 24/7 need to have emergency treatment available for injured patients suffering fractures and other orthopaedic traumas. 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. CMO surgeons play a critical role in providing emergency and follow-up care to patients with orthopaedic injuries, working as members of a multidisciplinary team of specialists who make up CMMC’s Trauma Program.
The entire team includes LifeFlight of Maine medical services, the CMMC Emergency Department, the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine (OICM), CMO and the CMMC Trauma Program.
