Introduction: COVID-19 has had profound implications on global healthcare systems, and this pandemic management has led to a significant change in orthopedic surgical activity. We aimed to evaluate the types and incidence of fractures treated during the pandemic to provide insight into the situations for which orthopedic trauma surgeons should be prepared in unusual circumstances that may arise in the future.

Methods: Descriptive observational cross-sectional study from Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital and Ulin General Hospital was conducted from electronic medical records between January 2018 and December 2022. Analysis was performed using SPSS version 26 on descriptive analysis using mean, frequency, percentage, and standard deviation.

Results: 2890 patients were enrolled for the current cohort, from 2018 until 2022, with predominantly male (n = 2117). Even though, an increase in overall admission from 2018 (n = 631) to 2019 (n = 784), a decrease after that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is from 2020, 2021, and 2022 (n = 652, 500, and 323, respectively)

Conclusion: Knowing the number of fractures can be a tool to evaluate the types and incidence of fractures treated during the pandemic to provide insight into the situations for which orthopedic trauma surgeons should be prepared in unusual circumstances that may arise in the future.
