Orthopedic traumatologists diagnose and treat diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Their expertise is needed for patients with traumatic injuries as well as congenital defects or deformations of the structures of bones, joints, muscles and tendons. Experienced orthopedic traumatologists work at the GMS surgery center, successfully treating even complicated cases using advanced treatment techniques and modern, high-tech equipment.

Orthopedic traumatologists are experts in treating various diseases and pathological conditions of the musculoskeletal system:
GMS Hospital performs both elective and emergency surgical procedures. Thanks to the use of modern equipment and minimally invasive technologies, all operations are performed with minimal trauma to healthy tissue, and with the best clinical results possible.
Consultation with an orthopedic surgeon begins with an interview and medical history. Then the doctor will perform a physical examination with a visual analysis of the physiological structure of the skeletal system, and will determine the amplitude of movement in the damaged joint. To obtain a complete picture of the injury and assess the extent of damage to the musculoskeletal structures, the doctor will order additional tests and examinations.
To diagnose disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system, orthopedic traumatologists at the GMS surgery center use a number of high-precision methods, including:
Based on the results of these examinations, the doctor will draw up a therapeutic scheme and a plan of rehabilitation.
At the surgery center of GMS Hospital doctors perform almost every type of operation to treat diseases and traumatic injuries of the musculoskeletal system:
Orthopedic traumatologists at our surgical center have mastered all classical and modern surgical procedures for treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system, ensuring the best results even in the most complicated clinical situations.
After the orthopedic traumatologist performs a physical examination of the patient and receives the results of various instrumental examinations, he or she will determine how urgently an operation should be performed. Indications for emergency hospitalization and emergency surgery are:
If a planned intervention is to be performed, the doctor will make the necessary preoperative preparations, and will provide the patient with medical support in the postoperative period. During a planned operation, the patient goes to the hospital on the day of the operation or the night before (to be decided individually). In most cases, hospitalization lasts no more than 1-3 days. If an urgent intervention is necessary, immediately after the consultation the patient is admitted to the hospital, where preparation and surgery will be carried out within approximately 1–1.5 hours.
Thanks to a well-designed rehabilitation program, created by the orthopedic traumatologist, recovery will be as smooth and as fast as possible. Sign up any time by phone or online for a consultation with a specialist at GMS Hospital.
