The Department of Orthopaedics was functioning initially as a part in Government District Hospital about 40 years back. In those days one or two Orthopaedic surgeons were managing all kinds of Orthopaedic cases with limited facilities. When the Government hospital was established as a Medical College Hospital in April 2008, a separate Department of Orthopaedics was formed with adequate faculties and facilities. The Department receives lot of polytrauma cases especially due to Road Traffic Accidents as it is situated near the National highway.
It has a 24 hours accident and emergency service and injured cases are brought immediately to the hospital with the help of 108 free ambulance service. An accident and Emergency ward with operation theatre is also available to tackle emergency cases. All kinds of Orthopaedic surgeries are done with facilities like C- arm Image intensifier and Multipurpose Orthopaedic table. The Department is functioning with two units, a separate OPD block, Male and Female Ortho wards in the newly constructed 500 bedded building.
Club foot clinic is conducted every Friday. A separate Physiotherapy department with experienced Physiotherapists are available for Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.
