Trauma Surgery focuses on the injuries caused by impact force, especially on the joints. An orthopedic trauma surgeon specializes in the treatment of complex fractures, broken bones, and other injuries caused by traumatic events. The primary role of the orthopedic trauma doctor varies from treating hairline fractures to broken bones, as well as issues with tissues and joints, in the wake of an accident or a traumatic injury.
Often trauma injuries are caused by:
- Being involved in an accident
- Getting injured while playing sports
- Natural disasters
Common orthopedic procedures:
- Joint Arthroscopy
- Bone fracture repair
- Corrective surgery
Orthopedic trauma such as fractures can occur to anyone, at any time. While some injuries are minor and require less complicated and non-surgical treatment, others may require surgery. In trauma surgery, more complete recovery is possible and ensures more quick function restore of the joint.
