ESTES-European-Society-for-Trauma-Emergency-SurgeryThe European Society for  Trauma & Emergency Surgery (ESTES) was formed in 2007 by the merger of the European Association for Trauma & Emergency Surgery and the European Trauma Society.  Since then it has continued to promote best practice in the provision of emergency and trauma surgery from pre-hospital care through diagnosis, intervention and intensive care to rehabilitation.  This is underpinned by international collaboration,  scientific research, development and delivery of training courses, and the work of specialist sections.
