Robert Wojahn

Assistant Professor


As an orthopedic trauma surgeon, it is my job to help people through what is often one of the most challenging periods of their lives. Traumatic injuries occur unexpectedly and can be life-changing. Optimal care frequently requires urgent decision making and understanding the many complex factors at play. My goal is to not only provide high quality care but also help patients and families understand these issues. It may be a long road to recovery after an injury but I will support patients throughout the process to maximize their long-term function.
