Trauma Conditions & Treatments
Surgery for Trauma
Our team at Melbourne Bone and Joint will perform a complete assessment of your injury to determine what treatment options are available. There are often different ways to treat injuries and these can be discussed and personalised to your specific needs and requirements.
It is important to know, that while trauma surgery is common, the degree of healing that the body is able to undergo may vary from one person to another.
Sometimes, surgery is required to stabilise the initial injury and further surgery to ‘reconstruct’ damaged regions may be required.
What can I do to help healing?
After any type of injury, the body will try to heal itself. Surgery can help in putting bones and soft tissue back to the correct place.
Some of the most important things you can do to help your body heal include:
- Eating healthy
- Quitting smoking
- Vitamin C
- Keeping wounds clean and dry
- Working with health professionals to stay as active as possible
- Maintaining a positive attitude
Rehabilitation often plays a vital role in the healing process and the team at Melbourne Bone and Joint will assist you in getting the help you need.
