1. What is the task of traumatology and sports surgery?
Traumatology is a medical discipline dealing with traumas concerning all body caused by some physical force. Traumas include the simplest bruises not causing any structural changes, they include slipped joints, and more serious problems, affecting several systems of organs, e.g. injuries during serious traffic accidents. Managing newly injured people is performed at the emergency sections of traumatological departments where specialists are permanently alert in order patients could be treated as early as possible.
Emergencies have several grades. In cases of life-threatening injuries (e.g. serious internal traumas, acute haemorrhages, etc.), there are only minutes or sometimes hours available to manage the trauma successfully, that is why these problems can only be solved in emergency centers. However, in most cases of fresh traumas (e.g. injuries of the limb or joints), the task of the emergency section is to provide primer treatment that is to put the affected part of the body in a rest and to apply symptomatic pain relief, while the final treatment is done later by specialists (surgeons specialized to manage knees, shoulders and other parts of body).
Sports surgery is a special field because injuries occur in connection with practising sports. These can be caused either by the effect of a single, acute physical force or by repeating microtraumas, so called sport harms (like different complaints concerning locomotor organs or joints e.g. tennis-elbow) While primer treatment of sports accidents is provided at the emergency sections, final the final treatment is done at specialist consultations.2. How does an examination take place?
It is possible to register to the examinations and treatments preliminarily at the receptions desk of our clinic personally, by phone or e-mail. At first personal visit, the patient is registered at the receptions desk and then he or she is directed to the specialist by our colleagues.
Our specialists can recommend patients coming to our institute, besides a thorough physical examination and recording anamnesis, X-ray, MRI imaging and other special exams depending on individual problems. After establishing the exact diagnose, the physician proposes the appropriate treatment. We have a wide spectrum of treatment possibilities from the simple immobilizations and transitional resting of the affected part of body up to the special practises, medications (including the very effective cures of injections given locally into the joints), dietary and training advices, physical therapy; or, finally, a surgical intervention can also be possible. We have the most recent arthroscopic technologies for joint operations.
Payment is done at the receptions desk after the examination, the consultation or the treatment.3. When do we need help in the field of traumatology or sports surgery?
