Trauma Centers

Goals

Determine the number of level I and level II trauma centers in the United States that perform skeletal tractions. Obtain also the trauma case load or volumes across level I and level II trauma centers in the United States. The information will be used to validate the market size.

Early Findings

Trauma Centers that Provide Orthopaedic Services


O rthopaedic Market Size

  • The global orthopaedics implant market size is round $45.9 billion in 2017. This amount is seen to grow at a rate of 4.7% from 2018 to 2025, eventually reaching $66.6 billion in 2025.
  • Globally, the orthopaedic trauma product segment reached $7.21 billion in 2018.

Caseload Volume-related Statistics

  • For level 1 trauma centers in trauma service areas (TSA) with over 1.5 million in population, the minimum annual caseload volume is around 1,200 patients who are gravely injured.
  • For level 1 trauma centers in trauma service areas (TSA) with 1.5 million people and below, the minimum annual caseload volume is around 1,000 patients who are gravely injured.
  • For level 2 trauma centers in trauma service areas (TSA) with over 1.25 million in population, the minimum annual caseload volume is around 1,000 patients who are gravely injured.
  • For level 1 trauma centers in trauma service areas (TSA) with 1.25 million people and below, the minimum annual caseload volume is around 500 patients who are gravely injured.
  • For each of the trauma center types above, an additional 40 cases annually can be added for every accredited trauma surgeon if the center has a trauma residency program.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Our initial research provided some of the trauma centers that provide orthopedic surgery that typically include skeletal traction. However, the specific data on the total number of trauma centers that met the given condition and the caseload per trauma center for orthopedic services were not available. Given this, we propose to start the research work by providing an additional 40 level I or level II trauma centers that offer orthopaedic or skeletal traction services. We will start to go through the 533 verified trauma centers from the source above and check which of them provide orthopaedic services or skeletal traction surgery. For each trauma center found, we will provide the name of the trauma center, level, and 1-2 trauma services provided that include orthopaedics.
We also recommend proceeding with the research to provide 5-7 insights or related statistics on the trauma case loads or volumes across level I and level II trauma centers in the United States.
