An injury that is caused by some external force is often referred to as “trauma”. When referring to Orthopaedic Trauma, it may refer to various orthopedic conditions that are developed due to chronic or traumatic injuries and require immediate medical help. An orthopedic trauma injury is a result of a severe fall, a serious accident, or even a violent attack. For repairing such fractures and other trauma injuries, orthopaedic doctors offer several surgical and non-surgical orthopedic services. The main aim of the surgery is to avoid any further damage to the affected area which is possible if the problem is left untreated.
In India, trauma is the primary cause of mortality and morbidity. Trauma is in fact, not only a source of physical disability but also emotional and financial distress especially in middle and lower-class families catering to people of all age groups.
