    Many of the extremity injuries suffered in Iraq and Afghanistan are similar to those seen in previous conflicts. But according to Dr. Jim Ficke, chief of orthopaedic surgery at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, and an orthopaedic consultant to the United States Army Surgeon General, the wounds are occurring at a notably higher rate.
