    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Joseph Patterson believes in delivering personalized, evidence-based care to help patients recover after as fully as possible after an injury. As a fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopaedic trauma surgeon, Dr. Patterson is an expert in the treatment of fractures and dislocations of the pelvis, acetabulum, scapula, and upper and lower extremities. Dr. Patterson has extensive experience with repairing complex fractures that have not healed correctly, including nonunion repair surgery, bone grafting, malunion correction, deformity correction, and post-traumatic limb lengthening.

    Dr. Patterson's research focuses on prospective clinical trials of technological innovations, treatment comparisons, and social determinants of access to improve patient outcomes and shape policy in musculoskeletal trauma care. He has received research grants from the National Science Foundation, Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, James O. Johnston Foundation, and AO North America as well as Young Investigator research awards from the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and AO North America.
