The Trauma Committee Group have been working with the Orthopaedic Trauma Society (OTS) and the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH), and have now published a new BOAST on ‘Management of Distal Radial Fractures’. All of our BOASTs are available to download here.
The BOA – Who we are
The British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) is the Surgical Specialty Association for Trauma and Orthopaedics in the UK.
We provide national leadership, a unifying focus, and charitable endeavour by:
- Caring for Patients; Supporting Surgeons; Transforming Lives
As a membership organisation we care for patients and support surgeons by focusing on excellence in:
- Professional Practice; Training and Education; Research
Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery is a highly cost effective form of treatment which aims to restore pain free mobility for patients. By restoring mobility, Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery can not only help people stay active for longer, but deliver major economic savings; enabling people to return to work, or live more independently.
Given the growing musculoskeletal disease burden, and the transformative impact surgery can have for the right patients, we believe surgeons, commissioners and colleagues across the NHS should work together to increase surgical capacity.
This spring donate to Joint Action – the research appeal of the BOA. Your donations could make a massive difference to the future of Trauma and Orthopaedic research. We appreciate your support! Donate here.
