Find a Doctor Disclaimer
“Find a Doctor” is operated by Lifespan and includes all physicians who are on the medical staffs of Lifespan-affiliated hospitals, without any charge to them. Selection is based upon your needs and preferences. Search results will first present, in alphabetical order, physicians employed or contracted with Lifespan or its affiliates, followed by an alphabetical listing of physicians who are in Lifespan’s network of affiliated providers. At the end of that initial list, you can access an alphabetical listing of community physicians with privileges at Lifespan hospitals. All physicians in Find a Doctor have the opportunity to have a picture or video posted on the site. Neither the order of physicians, nor the presence or absence of a photo or video, in Find a Doctor is intended to reflect any preference, priority, or recommendation by Lifespan. Find a Doctor search results are also not based on the volume or value of referrals to Lifespan or its affiliates from any listed physician. Users are free to select their physician of choice from among all Lifespan-affiliated medical staff physicians.
Roman A. Hayda, MD, chief of orthopedic trauma at Rhode Island Hospital and associate professor of orthopedics at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, is devoted to providing state-of-the-art orthopedic trauma care. His areas of expertise include the evaluation and treatment of fractures and other injuries of the extremities and pelvis. Fractures around joints, particularly those of the knee, elbow, ankle, and hip are of particular interest.
In addition to these acute injuries, Dr. Hayda treats post-traumatic conditions such as nonunion of fractures, infected fractures, malunions, and arthritis. When possible, he uses minimally invasive techniques of fixation using plates, rods, or screws. He also has significant experience in using circular fixators and other techniques to regenerate bone.
Dr. Hayda earned his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, and completed his orthopedic residency training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, also in Bethesda.
