FAQs About Foot and Ankle Surgery
How long does a trauma surgery take?
This depends on the Injury Severity Score. In simple words, a typical trauma surgery’s first round takes an average 25 minutes. If second and third rounds are required, they take an average 70 minutes of procedure.
What documents should I submit before a trauma surgery?
These are emergency cases, and it is ideal to reach a medical center right away. That’s why, orthopedic trauma specialists don’t ask for old paperwork at the instance. However, if possible, you should carry these documents to the hospital or medical facility where you intend to receive or apply for treatment:
- ID card
- Insurance documents
However, patients’ attendants are recommended to provide documents related to medical history, and inform in time about health conditions like diabetes.
Do I need X-rays before approaching for orthopedic trauma surgery?
No. After a trauma, a patient’s or their attendants’ first priority should be to reach a medical facility. Orthopedic trauma specialists conduct these pre-operative procedures and recommend Xrays, and diagnostic tests themselves.
What is the average recovery time after trauma surgery?
While the average recovery time for simple fractures is six weeks, more complex fractures can take around eight months. Patients can get back to their normal routines, including decent physical movement and non-physical professional work within four months.
Are there any alternates to trauma surgery?
In most cases, there are no alternates to trauma surgery, especially when a patient is diagnosed with a traumatic fracture or related condition. There are rare cases when the impact has not hit the musculoskeletal components and doctors can suggest a minimally invasive or conservative surgical option for a later time.
