In our Center for Traumatology, we treat non-critical and non-life-threatening fractures and injuries. Most often, these are isolated fractures of the upper or lower extremities that do not need extremely urgent treatment, but shouldn't be postponed either.

Contact us with full confidence for a post-injury examination or a second opinion on how to treat your injury. The areas of work of the Center for Traumatology are:

About fractures

Fractures are caused by the action of a strong mechanical force on the bone, which leads to a loss of bone strength and function. They most often occur as a result of falls and sports activities, or traffic accidents. The first step in diagnosing a fracture is a clinical examination and an X-ray. If there is a need for additional radiological examinations, MSCT or MRI can also be performed. When a fracture diagnosis is made, further treatment is arranged with the patient, which can be conservative (cast or orthosis) or surgical. In principle, fractures without displacement or with minimal displacement are treated conservatively, and if the displacement is significant, surgery is required.

What to expect from conservative treatment?

Conservative treatment:

  • applies to most fractures
  • prescribed immobilization is worn
  • coming for regular check-ups and X-ray imaging
  • physical therapy after removing the immobilization

What to expect from surgical treatment?

Surgical treatment includes:

  • shorter hospital stay
  • anesthesia - regional or general
  • surgical incision over the fracture site
  • implant placement that allows the bone to heal in a good position
  • early physical therapy and stretching
  • post-operative controls and X-ray imaging to monitor bone healing
  • in some cases, implant removal after bone healing
