Trauma Follow-Up Clinic
Along with our partners at UT Health San Antonio, the Trauma Follow-up Clinic provides post hospitalization care and treatment for traumatically injured patients and for acute general surgery patients as well.
Our clinical team has extensive experience in a number of specialties and subspecialties to meet your complex, on-going medical needs. We also provide life-changing medical care to thousands of children through our Pediatric Trauma & Burn Center.
Whether you’re recovering from a car accident, a fall or trauma from an unexpected event, our goal is to help adults through multiple stages of recovery. Our follow-up care services include additional procedures, operations and treatments beyond your initial medical treatment. We closely monitor your progress - making sure you get the follow-up care you need during the weeks and months that follow a life-changing event.
Our Trauma Follow-up Clinic provides:
- Plastic, orthopedic and other trauma follow-up surgeries
- For some injuries, X-rays and other diagnostics
- Counsel on work, school or other activity restrictions
- Coordination of physical and occupational therapy as needed
We provide the convenience of an in-clinic radiology department, which makes follow-up appointments faster and easier. For those who need splinting and casting treatments, our nationally-certified technicians have advanced medical knowledge.
As part of our follow-up clinic services, many of our patients with burns, broken bones and other serious injuries receive ongoing treatment and physical therapy at Reeves Rehabilitation Center at University Hospital. Extensive outpatient services, at other locations, are also available as your rehabilitation progresses.
Trauma patients can also access community resources and emotional support services through our membership with the Trauma Survivors Network (TSN).
Our doctors, nurses and technicians provide trauma-informed care by treating all patients with respect and being aware that you may have past experiences that could affect your behavior and comfort level while receiving treatment in a hospital environment.
Our caregivers explain what they’re going to do before they do it. We realize that good communication is key to minimizing patients’ stress during medical emergencies. Trauma is a complicated event and we treat every patient with compassion and understanding.
