Trauma Surgery

When the Unthinkable Happens

We all hope we never experience traumatic accidents like vehicle crashes and serious falls. But critical injuries do occur, and Geisinger’s trauma surgeons are vital to saving the lives of individuals in their most vulnerable hours. Around the clock, 365 days a year, Geisinger trauma surgeons work with amazing precision to handle multiple, complex conditions simultaneously.

Geisinger Medical Center is the only Level I Regional Trauma Center in the region, with a fully staffed trauma team available 24/7. Among the trauma specialists are neurosurgeons, maxillo-facial trauma, orthopaedic and pediatric surgeons, all standing by to help you or your loved one.

Geisinger Wyoming Valley is the only Level II Trauma Center in Luzerne County, also open 24/7. Situated in a new critical care building, the Emergency Department and trauma suites connect to aid the surgical trauma specialists to rapidly assess and treat life- threatening injuries. 

Geisinger’s trauma designations mean our surgical team has demonstrated, time and again, our ability to provide the most advanced intervention in life-and-death cases.

So while no one likes to think about accidents happening, we at Geisinger will be ready when they do.
