About the Orthopaedic Trauma Society

The Orthopaedic Trauma Society was launched in August 2013 at the Trauma Symposium.

Our aim is to play a key role in maintaining and advancing the standards of orthopaedic trauma in the British Isles.
We will achieve this by being:

  • A forum for Orthopaedic Trauma surgery in the British Isles.
  • The focus for Orthopaedic Trauma research, training and education.
  • The organiser of scientific meetings on Orthopaedic Trauma.
  • The representative body for British Orthopaedic Trauma to Government, national bodies and organisations, and international organisations.
