Dr. Hans-Christoph Pape, 43, is chief of the division of orthopedic trauma in the department of orthopedic surgery at UPMC. He is a pioneer in "damage control orthopedics," in which seriously injured patients are stabilized, with organ and system functions restored as fully as possible before orthopedic repair begins. Dr. Pape and colleagues have published studies suggesting that the traditional approach of surgically repairing multiple orthopedic injuries simultaneously with severe organ and system traumatic injuries may cause additional unnecessary stress and unfavorable long-term effects. Before joining UPMC, Dr. Pape, a native of Bielefeld, Germany, was professor and vice chairman of trauma surgery at Hannover Medical School in Germany. Dr. Pape has more than 140 peerreviewed articles, nearly half of which he was the lead author. He is living in Squirrel Hill.
