Orthopaedic Traumatology refers to the orthopaedic care of patients with difficult or complex fractures, non-unions and mal-unions. Orthopaedic trauma is a severe injury to part of the musculoskeletal system such as a bone, joint or ligament. Leading causes of orthopaedic trauma include vehicular and industrial accidents, slips, falls or sports injuries. People of all ages can be affected by a traumatic injury. These injuries can be complex to treat and may involve multiple parts of the body.
