Injuries caused by impact and blunt force are deemed necessary for trauma surgery. Because these injuries usually cause for emergency, it requires a certain skill and precision to be able to make decisions and perform surgery under these circumstances.

Trauma injuries can be minor and major, singular or multiple. As a trauma surgeon, Dr Muthambi has the authority and capabilities to make decisions on which of the injuries to prioritise, as well as determining the order of the diagnostic and surgical procedures that are needed. Injuries to the internal organs, bones, the brain, and the other soft tissues of the body are trauma surgeries in which Dr Muthambi is skilled and trained.
