Department of Trauma Centre

Increasing urbanization and rapidly growing vehicular traffic is outpacing the road space and dangerously increasing the density of vehicles per km. This is leading to an increase in road traffic accidents. More lives are lost each year due to traffic related accidents than the deaths during the 2nd world war. Deaths and permanent disability caused due to Trauma or Road Road Traffic Accidents can be prevented if the victim is brought to a well equipped Trauma Centre. When someone is critically injured every second counts. Getting timely & adequate care is the key for prevention of most of the deaths. This fact has been well recognized by the government of India, which is planning to build trauma centers on major highways.

Apex Hospital has taken an early initiative towards this and has set up a well equipped and hi-tech trauma management system in keeping with its tradition of providing world -class facilities to its patients.
