Acute Care and Trauma Surgery

Main Number: 617-414-4861

The Sections of Acute Care and Trauma Surgery/Surgical Critical Care in the Department of Surgery care admit approximately 2,400 patients each year. Surgeons in this group are full-time faculty members of Boston University School of Medicine. Surgical Critical Care faculty, all boarded in surgical critical care and with additional qualifications in traumatology and acute care surgery, provide 24/7 services for Boston Medical Center (BMC).

At BMC, we have earned a reputation dating back more than a century for excellence in trauma care. The BMC Trauma Center, one of the country’s finest, has earned verification from the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 adult trauma center and a Level 2 pediatric center. It is the busiest trauma center in New England and sees the highest percentage of penetrating trauma cases in the region.

In addition to providing excellent surgical care, our faculty are committed to training the next generation of surgeons and to conducting a wide range of research, with a focus on reducing disparities in access to health care and high-quality surgical care and on improving surgical outcomes.
