Dr. Cannada discusses if a woman should see a specialist if she fractures her pelvis.
She should see a specialist in orthopedic trauma who deals with pelvic and acetabular trauma because not everyone, we have orthopedic trauma specialists, but not everyone does takes care of the pelvis and acetabulum. You want to take care, see someone who takes care of those injuries specifically so that you get a proper evaluation and treatment.
