The Trauma Unit, part of the Orthopaedics Unit, was created for the treatment of fractures of the upper and lower extremities.

It also deals with possible outcomes related to trauma: pseudarthrosis, acquired deformities and post-traumatic osteoarthritis.

A further field of interest is the treatment of sport trauma: capsular, ligamentous and joint injuries of the shoulder, knee, ankle.

It also treats degenerative joint diseases: shoulder, hip and knee osteoarthritis.

The surgical activity, carried out in ordinary hospitalisation and day-surgery, is therefore particularly dedicated to:

  • Trauma of  the upper and lower extremities
  • Arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, knee, ankle and elbow
  • Shoulder, hip and knee prosthetic surgery
  • Foot surgery
  • Hand surgery
