The Orthopedic Department at the Trauma Institute commenced working in early 2017 and gradually within two years developed a fully-fledged range of trauma orthopedic services that fulfill the requirements of a Level 1 Trauma Centre.
Our vision is to provide exemplary, compassionate and effective patient care, while developing more effective modes of orthopedic treatment improve surgical skills as well as, pre & post- op care through empirical research based on native data.
We have been providing international standard services to all poly-trauma patients coming from Sindh, Baluchistan and beyond. We have completed 4000+ and counting solely orthopedic procedures in our department, notwithstanding the procedures we have carried out with the Vascular and OMF departments. In November 2018, an international pelvic and acetabulum conference was held and led by Dr. Amir Haleem (HoD) at the SMBB Institute Trauma, which involved delegates from the U.S.A. and Europe.
In the future we hope to develop a satellite centre for trauma services through which we can train orthopedic surgeons in other centres as well. We also hope to establish a Sports Injury Unit to educate, train and treat sports related trauma injuries.
Regardless, our primary concern shall always be educating the general public on road safety. Prevention is of utmost importance: stay safe, drive and walk cautiously to avoid severe injuries. Seat belts, helmets, avoidance of over speeding are life savers.
