::Departments : Clinical : Orthopaedics

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.

Available facilities 

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. Disability camps are being conducted on every week throughout the district. Accident& Emergency and Ortho wards are functioning in newly constructed 500 bedded building
