ABSTRACT
The article discusses the various aspects of surgical care in orthopaedics. It discusses the changes in orthopaedic surgery including the management of open fractures and compartment syndrome. It mentions the damage control orthopaedics approach for multiply injured patients, in which repair of fractures can only be done when patients have achieved stable physiology and optimum resources are available. It also explores the factors involving the performance of the surgeons and associated fatigue.
