What Sets Us Apart

The Orthopedic Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) New Brunswick specializes in comprehensive care for a broad range of advanced orthopedic procedures. But what sets us apart from other orthopedic facilities in New Jersey?

Level 1 Trauma Center

As one of only three Level I & one of two pediatric trauma centers in New Jersey, RWJUH regularly cares for the state’s most seriously injured and critically ill patients. Many of these cases involve orthopedic trauma, or serious injuries to bones, joints and soft tissues such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. Under the guidance of fellowship trained surgeons, RWJUH is the major orthopedic surgery and referral center for local hospitals and orthopedic practices in central New Jersey.
