What is Fracture and Trauma Surgery ?
It is the surgical treatment done to treat fractures, injuries, crush or fall wounds, simple, complex, or compound dislocations, fractures where nerves and vessels may be involved, and/or sports injuries. These accidents may sometimes be life-threatening and demand life support. Hence, specialized doctors who can perform surgeries to bring back the normal anatomical configuration of the affected areas, while putting the patient on emergency life support will take up such cases. More often than not, trauma surgery is performed on an immediate basis. Fractures, on the other hand, will be treated according to their severity.
