What is Orthopaedic Trauma?

Orthopaedic trauma is a branch of orthopaedic surgery that is intended to treat various orthopaedic conditions which are related to bones, joints, and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) of the entire body following trauma and demand immediate medical help. The aim of this specialisation in orthopaedics is to restore the anatomic alignment of joint surfaces and fractured bones. Most of the traumatic injuries are acute, and few are chronic. We offer comprehensive treatment services for recovery of the injured body parts and help a patient return to normal body functioning at the earliest.
