Traumatology

What is Traumatology?

Traumatology is the branch of medicine that deals with wounds and injuries resulting from accidents or violence and the surgical therapy and repair of the damage with the goal of returning the body to its pre-accident condition. It is the job of the traumatologist to diagnose and treat bone fractures, joint dislocations, sprains and bruises as well as muscle, tendon and nerve injuries caused by external mechanical forces.

The care and treatment of simple fractures, as well as multiple fractures, series of injuries, multiple traumas and serious life threatening injuries is organized in an on-call basis across Hungary. Aside from trauma surgery, emergency care entities and special hospitals are part of this network, including intensive care anaesthesiologists, internists, neurologists and other specialists necessary for the care of the injured.  The  injured are cared for in the traumatology department by a 24-hour on-duty staff providing care in the shortest time possible or immediately upon arrival. All the necessary X-rays, CT's and laboratory testing required are provided.

We offer treatment and diagnosis or, if needed, surgery or conservative care of mild, closed limb injuries, smaller fractures, sprains and strains. Following acute care, we are set up to continue the care with checkups, monitoring fractures through x-rays, replacing casts or applying lightweight fiberglass casts and removing metal implants. We also often find improperly healed fractures with residual abnormalities that we can diagnose and treat either as outpatients or inpatients.

Post-traumatic rehabilitation is also available with the assistance of highly-trained physiotherapists and masseurs. Our diagnostic department is set up with digital x-ray equipment and ultrasonography, and for up-to-date joint and soft tissue musculoskeletal examinations.

Ultrasonography for Doppler examination is also available as is 3D CT and MRI. Osteoporosis may be ascertained with the DEXA equipment.

Several associate specialties help our work in the differential diagnosis of musculoskeletal diseases. Of the neurophysiology methods, for instance, the electroneuronography (ENG) and the electromyography (EMG) are invaluable in the diagnosis and choice of treatment for several types of tunnel syndromes.

Treatments are by appointment. Treatment should begin in the shortest time possible following injury.
