Empowering patients through the pursuit of clinical and research excellence.
Welcome to the McMaster Orthopaedics Trauma and Reconstruction (MOT+R) program. We are a patient-centred organization comprised of clinicians, scholars and staff with the goal of treating the critically injured, restoring patient function, and ultimately, saving lives.
Based at the Hamilton General Hospital, a Level III trauma center, MOT+R is a group of surgeons, scholars and staff that share the single goal: optimising the care of the critically injured. Through patient-centred clinical care, research and education, MOT+R is dedicated to pushing innovation in the field of orthopaedic traumatology.
At MOT+R, we recognize that the orthopaedic injuries suffered by our patients can have devastating, long-lasting impacts on their lives. We strive to provide our patients with both injury-specific information as well as resources to best cope with the emotional and psychological toll orthopaedic injuries may have.
MOT+R is home to a unique, customizable trauma fellowship that leverages our affiliated academic centres for broad exposure to orthopaedic trauma. As a teaching site for the McMaster University Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program, our surgeons are experienced, passionate clinical-educators.
Located at the home of evidence-based medicine, McMaster University, MOT+R strives to push innovation in orthopaedic traumatology through a range of research efforts that range from local research to participation in international multi-center randomised controlled trials.
