Trauma And Fracture Surgery

In today's times, increased traffic, better roads and faster life have led to increased incidence of accidents and increased severity of injuries. Such accidents occur mostly in young adults between 20 - 35 years and may lead to disability and death. In fact, accidents are the leading cause of death in the age group between 20 to 35 in developed and developing countries.

The initial first hour after an accident is called the 'Golden Hour.'
