Traumotology in Dnipro

Traumatology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and treatment of injuries, as well as subsequent rehabilitation. It is closely related to orthopedics, which also studies the musculoskeletal system and treats its diseases.

A traumatologist provides emergency care when a person has already been injured. An orthopedic doctor prevents the development of pathologies, treats congenital and acquired diseases of the musculoskeletal system, as well as the consequences of old injuries.

The help of a traumatologist is needed when you observe the following symptoms:

  • unnatural position of fingers, limbs and other parts of the body,
  • unstable position of the joint and limitation of its mobility,
  • an increase in size of a joint or body part, as well as swelling, redness or blueness,
  • pain, crunching or discomfort when moving.

You should urgently consult a traumatologist in the following cases:

  • fractures,
  • dislocation,,
  • ruptures or sprains of ligaments,
  • deep stab wounds,
  • injuries to the head, spine or chest,
  • injuries during training.

The sooner you see a doctor, the fewer consequences there will be from your injury.

What are the diagnostic methods at an appointment with a traumatologist in Dnipro?

When a patient arrives with an injury, traumatologist carefully examines the patient and asks questions about how the injury occurred.

To make an accurate diagnosis and choose the right treatment, the doctor may prescribe additional examinations:

  • X-rays to better see bone damage,
  • MRI or CT scan if it is necessary to see problems in soft tissues, ligaments, muscles and joints,
  • ultrasound diagnostics to better study superficial damage.

A combination of several diagnostic methods allows the doctor to select the most effective treatment method for each patient, also taking into account their lifestyle.

How does the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases at the Dnipro traumatology clinic go?

The traumatologist provides first medical aid immediately upon the patient’s arrival, for example, he performs initial treatment of the wound, applies sutures or plaster.

To treat fractures, the doctor can use advanced implant designs, with which healing and recovery proceed faster. In addition, they cause minimal discomfort to patients.

If surgical treatment is necessary, our doctors try to use minimally invasive methods, for example, arthroscopy, if the nature of the injury allows it. After such operations, the patient recovers quickly and returns to normal active life.

Osteosynthesis is also often used. It’s a method of fixing damaged bones, which minimizes the likelihood of displacement and preserves blood supply to the damaged area.

In addition, the orthopedic doctor selects a course of rehabilitation after conservative or surgical treatment of the injury, which can also be completed with us. A complex of physiotherapy and hardware techniques accelerates recovery and restores mobility to the damaged part of the body.
