Trauma - Surgery & Managenment

Trauma surgery is a surgical specialty that utilizes both operative and non-operative management to treat traumatic injuries, especially in an acute setting like an accident. The trauma surgeon is sometimes responsible for resuscitating, stabilizing and evaluating the patient and leads the trauma team. Trauma injuries can range from fractures or dislocated bones to soft tissue injuries, shock and burns. Trauma and orthopaedic surgeons often work together on a patient to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
