Dr. Mary Morrell

Trauma and Fracture Specialist

“I will treat you using all my experience and training to get you back doing what you want and need to do as fast as possible. I will take the time to listen to you and use state of the art diagnostic techniques and minimally invasive surgery - only when necessary - to get the best results for you.”

Dr. Morrell spends the time necessary to get a thorough history and perform a comprehensive physical exam, knowing that an accurate diagnosis and timely treatment are the foundation of the best treatment plan.

Doctor Morrell is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and is fellowship-trained in traumatology. Dr. Morrell has extensive training in fracture care.

Her orthopedic practice focuses on:
  • Women’s health issues
  • Pediatrics
  • Hand and wrist conditions
  • Arthritis pain

She is especially adept at closed-fracture management and is expert in the use of metal hardware and implants when surgical intervention is required – these treatments provide for limb stability, pain relief and quicker return to function.

Hand & Wrist Expert

An expert in arthroscopic procedures, Dr. Morrell has perfected the meticulously precise skills necessary for hand and wrist surgeries such as ganglion cyst excisions, carpal tunnel releases and fracture care of the hand and wrist.

Elite Female Orthopedist

As one of a small number of female orthopedists in the U.S., Dr. Morrell has a superior understanding of the orthopedic aspects of women’s health issues such as:
  • osteoporosis
  • osteoarthritis
  • female athlete conditions

She supports the growing need for early detection and treatment of osteoporosis to maintain strong bones and prevent fractures.

For arthritis pain, she employs a full range of joint preservation treatments and, when joint replacement surgery becomes necessary, uses minimally invasive techniques.

Except in emergency situations or where there is no other option than surgery, Dr. Morrell starts with a conservative approach and when necessary works up to more invasive procedures. With more than 20 years of surgical experience, Dr. Morrell knows that patients tend to recover more quickly at home and performs the majority of surgeries on an outpatient basis.
