According to the NHTSA, in 2015 alone over 2,400,000 people were injured in automobile accidents in the US1. In fact, automobile crashes are one of the leading causes of death in America. With statistics like these, chances are good you will eventually be involved in a collision if you drive a vehicle. But what do you do if you are injured in an auto accident? Once you have been treated for any immediate trauma injuries, where should you go for comprehensive orthopedic care? Onto Orthopedics is ready to get you on the road to recovery.

Onto Orthopedics is home to Dr. Shawn A. Hayden, a leading orthopedic surgeon in the Plano, TX area.

If you have been injured in an car accident, our office can help provide a diagnosis with some of the latest diagnostic technologies. These include ultrasound, Mi Eye 2, Direct Radiography (DR) x-ray, and c-arm equipment. With the Mi Eye, Dr. Hayden can take a video of the interior of certain joints to help ascertain the type and extent of your injuries. 

Advanced Treatments

Dr. Hayden is also trained in some of the leading treatment and reparative procedures to improve your recovery process. These treatments include many minimally invasive and arthroscopic procedures.
