What is Trauma surgery
Trauma surgery is the interventional, open surgical procedure done to treat injuries, fractures, burns, ulcers, herniation, crush injuries, and more in an acute setting using both operative and non-operative management techniques. The injuries can be due to heavy impact forces, road traffic accidents, falls or object crushes, sports injuries, and more. Trauma surgery also has knowledge of the adjacent musculoskeletal structures and vital structures like nerves and arteries because whenever an injury occurs, it is most likely to involve one or the other adjacent structures. The injuries may be life-threatening too. Trauma surgeons are trained in immediate and complete management of the injury.
