Trauma and fracture care: Every minute a young citizen is lost due to an accident or the subsequent care provided. The accident victim is a special patient who requires timely and appropriate care. Recognizing the specific needs of the injured victim and tailoring the treatment to help re-integrate him/her productively back to society remains the challenge. Fixing a broken bone is easy. Understanding the implications of a broken bone on the physiology of the body functions is vital. And the face of trauma is changing. Higher powered vehicles are increasing the amount of injury that a person sustains. Polytrauma (multiple injuries) is now seen more commonly. The resuscitation and timing and type of surgery have a significant impact on the outcome. Multidisciplinary care by qualified and dedicated team of professionals is the key to success. The department combines the best in medical care and surgical management with strong diagnostic services and rehabilitation programs.
