Northwest General Hospital & Research Centre has an active and busy Orthopaedic Department, dealing with trauma as well as congenital and acquired orthopaedic disorders. The department also sees chronic arthritis patients on a regular basis.
The Orthopaedic Department is managed by internationally trained, qualified and accredited doctors with vast national and international experience of dealing with Orthopaedic patients. With access to latest technologies and a well-equipped CSSD, the Orthopaedic surgeons routinely carry out major elective procedures such as joint replacements, limb preservation surgeries, arthroscopies and other complex procedures. All the patients are tended to in a dedicated Orthopaedic Ward managed by a Senior Registrar, and a team of Post-Graduate Trainee Officers and Medical Officers. Orthopaedic Consultants carry out daily rounds in the ward to ensure patients are receiving proper care.
