Orthopedic Trauma Treatment Specialist in Bangalore

Trauma is any severe injury to the elements of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, joints, ligaments, bones, and soft tissue)caused by an external force. These trauma injuries are often the result of a sudden accidental sports injury, domestic fall, physical violence, road traffic accident, requiring immediate medical attention. Older adults with osteoporosis - a condition that causes weak and brittle bones are more susceptible to a fracture when they fall.

Trauma injuries are mostly not life threatening, but could be life altering and hence require immediate medical attention by a trained orthopedic trauma specialist. Dr. Deepak G Shivarathre has 18 years of experience in treating trauma patients in UK & India and is considered as a specialist in providing orthopedic trauma treatment in Bangalore. Dr. Deepak is also available to provide a second opinion on your trauma injury.

Broad Trauma Symptoms

Traumatic injuries involve bone fractures or severe damage to soft tissues. Broad generic symptoms are listed below.

  • Severe Swelling & Pain

  • Bruising

  • Feeling a cracking or popping sensation

  • Deformity of the extremity


Serious accidents can cause multiple breaks, damage to blood vessels and tearing or rupturing of other tissues. In such cases, call the ambulance and go to the nearest emergency trauma center.


Orthopedic Trauma Treatment

Orthopedic trauma patients may undergo surgical or non-surgical treatment, depending on the injury. Less intensive injuries can be treated non-surgically by providing a cast, sling, braces, or splint outside of the injury for stability.

Surgery may be required for more serious injuries. Minor surgeries may involve placement of pins, wires, screws, and plates on the bone to stabilize it. Severe injuries may involve complex reconstructions procedures. 

Trauma Rehabilitation & Healing

Rehabilitation is started as soon as possible. Mobility is necessary to avoid loss of strength and for range of motion.

The amount of time it takes to recover from a fracture is determined by the type and severity of the injury. Severe cases might take up to several months to heal completely.

Also in some cases, bone fracture may not heal (non-unions) completely, or bone joints after fracture may not be in correct alignment (mal-union). Infections could also delay the healing process. You may again have to consult your doctor to get this corrected.


Treatment Options for Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor

As there are many varieties of Bone and Soft tissue sarcoma, the treatment options also can vary. Many children, teens and young adults with bone cancers could have a combination of various treatment like chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy etc. depending upon the case. However two common surgical options are listed below for reference.
