Orthopedics and trauma is the branch of surgery that takes care of musculoskeletal trauma.
Increasing urbanization and rapidly growing vehicular traffic are outpacing the road space and dangerously increasing the density of vehicles per kilometre. Over the past few years, this has led to a tremendous increase in road traffic accidents. More lives are lost each year due to traffic-related accidents than the deaths during World War II.
When someone is critically injured every second matters. Getting timely & adequate care is the key to prevention of most of the deaths. Deaths and permanent disability caused due to Trauma or Road Traffic Accidents can be prevented if the victim is brought to a well equipped Trauma Centre. This fact has been well recognized by the government of India, which is planning to build trauma centres on major highways.
Zion Hospital has taken an early initiative towards this and has set up a well equipped and hi-tech trauma management system, in keeping with its tradition of providing world-class facilities to its patients.

The Trauma team takes charge of the situation. An Ambulance equipped with Life-saving machines like Ventilator, DC Fabricators, Monitoring Devices, Oxygen Supply, Basic and Advanced Life support system, manned by trained personnel would be on the way within a few minutes.
The trauma team determines the severity of the injury, injury to specific body parts and identification of high-risk patients.
The injured patients are immediately put on life support system in the ambulance and the treatment starts at the site of accident itself. The patient is moved to the hospital for definite and final treatment.
Dedicated Trauma Surgeons & Physicians who are highly skilled in treating high-end injuries and providing tertiary care facilities will already be waiting at the hospital facilitating early diagnosis, surgery and critical supportive care.
In accident victims, the first hour after the accident is considered the 'Golden Hour'. It is critical in accident patients that the time gap between the accident and the definitive treatment is minimized. This can help in saving precious lives. It is made possible by our dedicated trauma service unit that the patient is quickly evaluated and moves through diagnostics and gets the final treatment within the golden hour.
A dedicated link is in place between inpatient rehabilitation and acute care, to ensure a smooth transition to long-term recovery.
