Trauma Surgery & Surgical Critical Care

What is Trauma Surgery & Surgical Critical Care
Trauma surgeons perform emergency procedures to save people’s lives when they have been critically injured. When someone has a life-threatening impact injury, such as from a car accident, specially-trained trauma surgeons will lead a team of health care professionals to immediately intervene and stabilize the person. After the initial intervention, trauma surgeons continue to manage and care for the patient while the patient is in critical condition. Trauma surgeons undergo rigorous training to be able to treat a wide variety of life-threatening injury situations. They also partner with trauma centers to ensure all required processes and procedures are handled appropriately, and to maintain the facility’s trauma verification. For example, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor is a Level I Trauma Center. This means they provide state-of-the art care to those who are injured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As part of this verification, dedicated trauma surgeons are available at all times.
