Michael Weaver, MD is the chief of the Orthopaedic Trauma Service. Dr. Weaver graduated from University of California Los Angeles Medical School and then from the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program. He recently completed a trauma fellowship with our Combined Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship program. Dr. Weaver's clinical interests include treatment of fractures around total hip and knee replacements, periarticular fractures, and fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum.
The Trauma Fellow, currently Jeffrey Potter, MD, is another important member of our team. The fellow has completed his/her orthopedic residency training and is now specializing in orthopedic trauma for one year (called a fellowship) in preparation for going into practice as an independent orthopedic surgeon. Our fellow acts like an attending doctor on our service.
Our Physician Assistant, Allyson Reilly, PA-C, specializes in the care of patients with orthopedic injuries. She works closely with all doctors and other clinical providers involved in your care and also works closely with you and your family.
The Orthopaedic Trauma Service enjoys an excellent collaborative relationship with all of the other BWH Orthopaedic subspecialty services. When the Trauma Service encounters complex problems that require additional clinical input, several members of the Orthopaedic Department actively contribute, including Drs. Brandon Earp and George Dyer from the Hand and Upper Extremity Service, Dr. Eric Bluman from the Foot and Ankle Service and Dr. Daniel Estok from the Joint Reconstruction Service.
