Traumatology and Orthopedic Surgery

Traumatology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and trauma to the musculoskeletal system. Traumatologists are specialized physicians who deal with acute injuries, such as fractures, dislocations, sprains, and strains.

They are skilled in assessing and managing emergency cases, providing immediate care to stabilize and treat traumatic injuries. Orthopedic surgery, on the other hand, is a surgical specialty that focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, including both acute injuries and chronic disorders. Orthopedic surgeons perform surgical procedures to repair fractures, reconstruct damaged joints, treat spinal conditions, and address other orthopedic problems.

They work closely with physiotherapists to provide comprehensive care for patients with musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, aiming to restore function and mobility.
