Ever increasing number of motor vehicles and the speed and recklessness of the modern man are the main causes of accidents that occur frequently. But accidents that cause severe injuries are a calamity that man may face sometime in his life. Common causes of trauma and fractures are motor vehicle accidents, pedestrians struck by motor vehicles, falls from height and athletic accidents. Often these accidents involve multiple-system injuries and lengthy rehabilitation.
Giving the best available medical attention on the accident spot without any delay is the only thing that we can do for the unlucky victims of the accidents. Managing a wound or a bone fracture is not a very difficult task. All surgeons will be able to achieve this based on their knowledge and experience gained through practice for several years. But when the fracture is complicated and the trauma is severe, the involvement of a trauma care specialist is warranted. The following types of fracture and trauma will be highly benefited by the treatment and care of a trauma care specialist:
- Fractures occurring at the upper and lower ends of long bones
- Fractures occurring at pelvic and acetabular regions
- Injuries caused in high energy collisions and by piercing objects
- Non-Union fractures
- Injuries that required bone fixations
- Injuries with segmented bones and soft tissue damages
Trauma care is a very fast growing medical department which must be equipped with latest instruments and with the best surgeons and round the clock service desk with facilities like ambulance van, blood bank, security personal and dedicated nursing care.
