Traumatology is the study of wounds and injuries caused by accidents or violence to a person, and the surgical therapy and repair of the damage. Traumatology is a branch of medicine. It is often considered a subset of surgery and in countries without the specialty of trauma surgery it is most often a sub-specialty to orthopedic surgery. Traumatology may also be known as accident surgery.
Santa Marina Polyclinic offers a fully equipped casualty facility on site to treat accidents and emergencies and a modern surgery for more complex operations such as fractures, dislocations, orthopedic surgery, keyhole orthopedic surgery (knee, shoulder), total hip and total knee replacement.
