What is trauma surgery?
Trauma surgery is the surgical specialty that deals with treating injuries caused by an impact.
In the case of severe trauma, such as a catastrophic road traffic accident, the trauma surgeon may be one part of a surgical team that includes vascular surgeons (to repair damage to blood vessels), orthopaedic surgeons (to repair broken bones) and other specialists such as neurosurgeons, maxillofacial surgeons (for facial and oral injuries), plastic surgeons and radiologists.

- Sporting injuries
