- Trauma Surgery
Trauma surgeons treat patients who come to emergency rooms and require surgery after any kind of accident. They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs. Because they treat patients in traumatic situations, they’re also typically skilled in offering some level of emotional support to help the patient cope with confusion and grief that may result from their accident.

When a 20 ton dump truck hit my car head on and was up to the windshield of my car I was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma where Dr. Poka and Dr. Burgess put my body together after performing 19 surgeries. I owe my life to these two outstanding surgeons. Dr. Poka left Shock Trauma and is now in Ohio.
