Trauma Surgery

Trauma Surgery

Overview

Trauma refers to injuries sustained by various mechanisms, road accidents, falls, twists and sprains, etc.

We fix and treat all fractures, simple and complex, dislocations of joints, open and closed fractures in all age groups using the latest treatment guidelines, and the most advanced and proven implants and rehabilitation regimen. Restoration of pre-injury functional status is our ultimate goal.

We employ minimally invasive methods in most of our fracture fixation surgeries thus resulting in minimal pain and early discharge and return to normalcy.

FAQ's

The answer is no. Fracture treatment is based on various factors like the bone involved, the age group, the type of fracture, the functional needs of the patient, etc. Thus it cannot be generalized that all fractures need surgery. Some can be managed with splints and casts.
Osteoporosis is a condition where the overall bone strength decreases and the bones become vulnerable to damage from regular stress. As expected, osteoporotic bones can break more easily when compared to a normal bone. The most common fractures seen in patients with osteoporosis are hips, spine and around the wrist. However, fractures of any bone can be seen in such patients.
The answer is no. There are many types of ‘’hip’’ fractures and depending on the location on the bone, the surgeon may prefer a hip replacement or a plate and screw construct or an intra medullary nail (rod).
The general rule followed in modern orthopaedics is to mobilize the patient and get him out of the bed as early as possible. Usually, in most cases, the patient will be ambulated on the first post operative day itself, either with full weight bearing or partial weight bearing on the affected limb or sometimes the patient is advised to avoid weight on the operated limb for a few days. But in all cases, the patient will be able to sit out of bed, sit on a chair. The average stay in hospital would be about 3-5 days, depending on the patients overall health situation.
Fracture treatment not only involves fixing the bone and promoting its healing in the most anatomical way but, also involves restoration of pre-injury functional status. This requires the bone to heal well and also the muscles and ligaments moving the bone to have good strength and permit mobility. This aspect is handled by the physiotherapy team. Generally, physiotherapy begins on the first post-operative day and involves mobilization of joints in and around the fracture site and strengthening of the muscles that permit this movement. Fracture pain causes patients to avoid movements around the injury and this causes muscles to weaken and ligaments and joints to become stiff. Early and meticulous physiotherapy may prevent or correct these ill effects.

Complex Trauma

Orthopedic trauma care covers the spectrum of simple isolated fractures to severe life threatening accidents with multiple broken bones. More significant injuries with multiple broken bones, compound fractures and fractures near a joint, and fractures of the pelvis are more difficult to treat, and benefit the most from specialized care. Additionally, problems with healing including nonunions, infections (osteomyelitis) and healing with poor alignment (malunion) are often treated by fracture specialists.

Our orthopedic trauma surgery program provides superior care to patients who have suffered a serious injury or accident. Our surgeons, who have years of specialty training and experience, are well equipped to handle multi-trauma patients with complex injuries.

With a dedicated orthopedic trauma operating room and an extensive inpatient rehabilitation program, our trauma team is able to provide timely, compassionate treatment in moments of critical need.

Because recovery can be lengthy, our surgeons and staff remain in close contact with patients throughout follow-up care and recovery.

Clinical Highlights Include:

  • Minimally invasive surgery for fractures
  • Treatment of nonunions and malunions
  • Pelvis and acetabulum surgery
  • Treatment for infected fractures and osteomyelitis
  • Limb lengthening
  • Bone and joint transplantation
  • Minimally invasive bone grafting
  • Complex soft tissue reconstruction
  • Complex traumatic fractures of the hip and extremities
