Trauma

Trauma is defined as injury caused by an external source, and can often be life threatening. In the field of orthopaedic medicine, trauma or orthopaedic trauma is categorized as a severe injury to the elements of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, joints, ligaments, bones, and soft tissue).

Therefore, the help of an orthopaedic surgeon is crucial.

We are a leading trauma centre equipped with state of the art facilities providing the highest level world-class surgical care to patients with traumatic injuries. Our 24/7 orthopaedic trauma department receives and treats all major and minor trauma and other orthopaedic emergencies.

Some of the common orthopaedic traumas are femoral and tibia shaft fractures, acetabular and pelvic fractures, spine and spinal cord injuries, hand and upper extremity injuries, foot and ankle injuries. Simple fractures, unstable fractures, open (compound) fractures, greenstick fractures are some types of fractures which are commonly noticed.

Open treatment involves surgical dealings with broken bone ends to fix them in place. Close treatment is a method where practitioner applies gentle pressure on the bone and with the skin and muscles left intact. Hence, no incursions are made or the bone is not seen by the surgeon.
