Trauma and orthopaedics is an area of surgery concerned with injuries and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system (the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves). You may be referred to a trauma and orthopaedic consultant for treatment of an injury such as a bone fracture, a deformity of the spine or limbs, or a long-term condition that’s developed over many years, such as osteoarthritis. We’ll be talking in-depth about this on the show with our expert who will also be taking your calls during the show if you have any concerns or questions on this topic.
