The Trauma and Acute Care Surgery Program offered by the Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care at Westchester Medical Center consists of a one year fellowship designed to provide training in Trauma, including diagnostic and therapeutic radiological procedures, and Acute Care Surgery. Candidates interested in additional training in the care of the acutely burned patients may elect to complete a supplemental one year fellowship in Burns. The fellows direct all aspects of care and operative management of trauma patients and of the patients who require urgent or emergent operative intervention.
The Level I regional trauma center averages 2800 patients admissions per year with a case mix of 88% blunt trauma and 12% penetrating trauma. The trauma intensive care unit is a 15-bed unit with state of the art monitoring capabilities, including NIRS, PbO2 monitoring, and microdialysis of patients with severe traumatic brain injury.
Acute Care Surgery
The Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care runs the Acute Care Surgery service, which provides timely surgical assessment and operative management of patients with diverse acute general surgical problems, concentrating the care of the patient into one service with dedicated faculty. The ACS service allows fellows to gain considerable expertise in surgical infections, complications of acute surgical disease, and complex surgical management.
