Shifa Department of Orthopedic Surgery

The Department of Orthopedic manages patients with musculoskeletal conditions such as bone and joint injuries, degenerative joint diseases, etc. The department provides a 24-hour trauma service for the hospital, managing all orthopedic trauma and injuries such as fractures and dislocations. It also coordinates the management and rehabilitation of patients after injury.
A physiotherapist with special training in orthopedic rehabilitation has been dedicated to patients’ postoperative rehabilitation.
As orthopedic surgery involves joint replacements and implant insertions such as nails and plates, it is absolutely essential to pay meticulous attention to aseptic conditions. The new elective orthopedic theatre has international standard laminar airflow. This is essential to minimize the risk of infection in orthopedic surgical cases such as joint replacement and implant surgery. In the near future, new orthopedic theatres are going to be handed over to the hospital. These new theatres are designed at the highest international standards.
The equipment needed in orthopedic surgery has to be of the highest standards. The newly acquired equipment includes an operating table that can be used to take X-rays during the surgery. Inventory of the instruments used in orthopedic surgery has been renewed. Disposable surgical gowns and drapes are being used during surgeries to further minimize the risk of infection.
