The Trauma Unit at Royal Cornwall Hospital looks after acute orthopaedic patients who are suffering from injuries and diseases of their bones, joints, ligaments, tendon, muscles or nerves.
The unit is split across two wards, Trauma 1 and 2, and we care for patients from the admission and pre-operation stages through to post-operative care, discharge and further rehabilitation.
