Trauma surgery is diagnostics, therapy and treatment of injuries. All types of injuries, from a simple skin wound to the complex fracture with soft tissue damage or organ damage are treated by the trauma surgeon.
Serious injuries need immediate emergency treatment at the next hospital. Especially injuries with remaining deficits of the musculoskeletal system may need corrective redo-surgery at a later stage.
