Dr. William J Kurtz Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • 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.

Thank You, Dr. Kurtz

Five months ago I was in a very serious car accident. Now, 4 1/2 months later I am walking, thanks to the ankle and hip operations performed by Dr Kurtz. There were others who stabilized me at the hospital and gave me physical therapy at the rehab center. I still am so gratefull to Dr Kurtz for his gentile and compasionate manner. He gave me instructions on what to do and not to do in my recovery at home. The happiest day was when he leaned over and told me I could go home. Life is almost back to normal.

Recently, I was an emergency admission with a fx femur after a fall. My designated MD had a full OR schedule so Dr. Kurtz stepped up to the plate & I couldn't be more satisfied. He took time to explain the situation in a calm, competent manner which put me @ ease. Surgically the result was excellent & I would recommend Dr. Kurtz to my closest friends.
