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
