Department of Orthopaedic Surgery


Why Give

Since its inception in 1952, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has played a crucial role in education, research and clinical service. Over the years, the department has built up a strong reputation in research and our staff is engaged in cutting edge research that spans from basic science to translational and clinical research with novel and therapeutic applications. Imagine a day when it will be possible to repair a cartilage or bone by inducing new bone and cartilage growth or use a simple saliva sample to predict if the curve progression in child with scoliosis will get worse. Imagine a day when our graying population can remain active throughout their sunset years with new innovations in orthopaedic treatment. These are a just a few of the endless possibilities for advancement in scientific and medical knowledge that could lead to better patient care.
