Trauma/Surgical Critical Care at Grady

Emory trauma surgeons Dr. Bryan Morse and Dr. Rondi Gelbard examine a patient at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Clinical Overview

Faculty surgeons of the Emory Department of Surgery provide surgical services at the Level I Marcus Trauma Center and the surgical intensive care unit at Grady Memorial Hospital, and are dual boarded in both general surgery and surgical critical care.

As a Level I trauma center, the Marcus Center is capable of providing total care for every aspect of injury, from prevention through rehabilitation. Additional qualifications of Level I trauma centers include:

The Marcus Trauma Center has 15 beds including seven resuscitation bays and eight critical care rooms, each fully equipped with advanced medical technology and cardiac monitoring.

At Grady's SICU, our faculty perform such bedside procedures as bronchoscopy, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), feeding tube placement, tracheostomy, and open abdomen dressing changes.

For the most detailed and comprehensive clinical information on the center, please visit Grady's Marcus Trauma Center website.


Grady is also an internationally recognized teaching hospital. In addition to supervising the Emory general surgery, emergency medicine, and oral surgery residents that rotate on the trauma service, Emory's Grady-based trauma surgeons manage a highly respected trauma/surgical critical care fellowship. The program is available to board-eligible surgeons, and involves one year in trauma and one year in an ACGME-approved surgical critical care fellowship.
