We are the Trauma Clinic.
We understand trauma and will help you recover.
We are a group of four experienced, dedicated and skilled emergency medicine physicians with a specialty interest in delivering high quality trauma care. We are devoted to improving the delivery of trauma care in Ireland for both simple and complex injuries. We incorporate the use of evidence based treatments and best practice protocols to ensure you get the best treatment available.
We are a cohesive group with a shared vision. We work together on a daily basis in one of the busiest Emergency Departments in Ireland at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. With a combined experience of over 50 years delivering this type of front line trauma care we have a unique skillset and depth and breadth of knowledge to manage a wide range of complex injuries including concussion, whiplash, sports and soft tissue injuries.
