Department — Orthopaedic SurgeryOverview
The Department of Orthopedic is among the largest of the surgical units at CMC & H. We cater to the medical needs of patients from distant places, especially the North and North-West of India. Today a well trained staff handles most orthopedic problems. Today our practice of Orthopedics includes and matches the best available in the country. Besides management of basic and complicated trauma, we also specialize in Joint Replacements, Arthroscopic Surgery and Surgery of Spine. In keeping with the changing times, we have a separate children’s clinic and look forward to establish further such sub specialties in the near future. Towards that end we have sent doctors abroad for further training in Arthroplasty and Shoulder surgery. As part of our Out Reach Program we hold regular camps for the needy in and around Punjab. Whether it was the tragedy following earthquakes in Gujarat or the recent havoc following the Tsunami disaster, our teams have helped out with others in the institution that had gone ahead and contributed with medical aid. Our trainees have also upheld the mandate of the institution by serving in far off mission hospitals providing the much needed help to the lesser fortunate in this country who would otherwise not have access to the reasonable medical care. Our motto continues to be: To train hundreds to serve thousands.
