The German Society for Orthopaedics and Trauma (DGOU) has different committees.

The 22 sections of the DGOU represent specialised sub-fields of orthopaedics and trauma surgery. Their task is to further develop those areas.

The 6 work groups are established for specific, scientific problems in the field of orthopaedics and trauma surgery for a limited period of time.

The 3 additional panels of the DGOU advise the Board on special issues regarding the association. They also prepare decisions for the Board and provide them with recommendations.

International Issues

The department on international issues of the DGOU coordinates contacts and activities with other national and international societies.
