Trauma Surgery

Trauma Surgery

Trauma surgery involves treating critical physical injuries due to external force on an emergency basis. The most common injuries treated at North Shore-LIJ are falls and motor vehicle accidents. Trauma surgeons lead a multidisciplinary team that evaluates, resuscitates, stabilizes, and operates on these patients. Trauma surgeons resuscitate, stabilize and evaluate patients, along with the rest of the trauma team.
