Pelvic trauma

      The orthopedic department at GHPSJ specializes in the management of pelvic and acetabular fractures.
      Patients are usually admitted to the emergency department (in the orthopedic or resuscitation ward) directly at GHPSJ or are transferred from other hospitals who lack this expertise.
      Patients can also be handled and supported remotely, starting with the accident during which the fracture could not have been properly initially treated (malunion).
      The GHPSJ has formed a team consisting of several highly specialized orthopedic surgeons in this particular field as well as anesthetists, resuscitators, vascular doctors, Radiologists, vascular surgeons and urologists who provide the comprehensive management of these complex traumas. It also has state-of-the-art imaging tools.
      The GHPSJ is the first center in the world to have used these advanced technologies applied to acetabular surgery.
