Dr. MacIntyre, a fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic trauma surgeon, was presented with the Dr. Thomas Clancy Trauma Award at the 27th Trauma Symposium, held at the Wilmington Convention Center on February 13, 2016.
The Clancy Trauma Award is presented to a leader who “goes above and beyond” in trauma care. It’s a very demanding specialty, and Dr. MacIntyre is extraordinarily committed to providing the very best in trauma care, putting in long hours, day in and day out.
Orthopedic trauma involves performing complicated surgeries that involve multiple fractures, compound fractures, pelvic fractures, and fractures near a joint. The specialty also involves restoring the anatomic alignment of the joint surfaces to allow for return to maximum function of the injured body part. Such injuries are very difficult to treat, so patients benefit greatly from his highly specialized care.
Dr. MacIntyre completed his undergraduate degree at Cornell University, his medical degree and residency at Temple University, and his fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, a top hospital for orthopedics. Having Dr. MacIntyre at EmergeOrtho and Novant Health is a wonderful resource for people living in southeastern North Carolina.
Thomas V. Clancy, MD, who established the award, summed up his contribution best: “As an orthopedic traumatologist, Dr. MacIntyre has enabled NHRMC to provide a high level of expertise in the management of patients from around the region with multiple, life-threatening injuries. He has also kept many patients from having to be airlifted to other trauma centers around the state.”
Between his advanced expertise and extraordinary dedication, Dr. MacIntyre is truly worthy of an award that recognizes physicians who go above and beyond.
Congratulations, Dr. MacIntyre!
