Specialist in trauma surgery/trauma surgeon
Trauma surgery experts work primarily with reconstructive joint surgery including arthroscopic procedures and the treatment of fractures with modern implants. The trauma surgeon is also specialized in replacing diseased or damaged joints by an endoprosthesis (artificial joint). This operation takes place particularly in the area of the hip joint, the knee joint and the shoulder joint. In addition to endoprosthetics, the most common operations in orthopaedics include cruciate ligament replacement, partial meniscectomy, intervertebral disc operations, forefoot operations, shoulder luxation and operations on the rotator cuff.
In addition to specialised surgical skills, specialists in trauma surgery mainly have knowledge of diagnostic procedures, as well as disease-related pre- and postoperative treatment. To become a specialist in trauma surgery, a physician must complete six years of postgraduate training. This specialist training must be completed in surgery.
