FNB Trauma Surgery
Ganga Hospital is a major tertiary care centre for accident injured patients and caters to more than 20000 trauma patients every year. The injuries range from the simplest to the most complex poly traumatized patients. The Trauma service of the Hospital works closely with the department of plastic surgery, abdominal surgeon, neurosurgeon and cardio-thoracic specialists to provide immediate resuscitation, stabilisation, surgical and intensive care and effective rehabilitation to provide the best care for the patients. The large patient turnover provides a fertile ground for surgical training and the department is recognized by the NBE for two-year super speciality training in Trauma surgery.

The Trauma fellowship enables the fellow to pursue research activities in trauma and also gain valuable clinical experience in trauma management. The fellow is primarily responsible for documentation and record maintenance of a large number of trauma victims. The trauma fellow actively participates in the documentation of all trauma patients and specifically patients with open injuries. The data has been used to evolve the Ganga Hospital Open Injury Severity Score and new protocols in the management of open injuries.
