ORTHOPAEDICS

Orthopaedic surgery or Orthopaedics is the branch of surgery concerned with acute, chronic, traumatic, overuse injuries and other disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The vast universe of Orthopedics explores the well-being of joints in the human body, covering illnesses and accidents that can disable an individual and prevent them from living pain-free.

  • The Department of Orthopedics at RMC is one of the oldest in Karnataka.
  • Learning is through routine classes as well as bedside teaching. PG residents are also taught through extensive practicals.
  • The teaching programme is rigorous and requires residents to attend classes every day of the week. This culminates in the Grand Rounds, where cases from the previous week are discussed and analysed.
  • Learning for PGs also occurs through the multiple internal and external conferences.
  • Residents also have access to other related departments such as spine, arthroscopy and orthoplasty, making the training relevant and whole.
  • The department closely collaborates with Radiology, Pathology, Oncology, Microbiology, Orthotics, Prosthetics and Physiotherapy.
  • The department provides access to the Advanced Learning Center (ALC), where at the Surgical Skills Lab, residents can practice dissection on human cadavers.
