Department of Orthopedics

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery in Wenzhou Medical University (WZU), formerly a division of the Department of Surgery, was established at the end of the 1950s. In 1981, together with Norman Bethune Orthopedic Clinic, we formed the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in Second Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical College. Since its establishment, the goal has been to achieve a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and patient care. Today, the department has gained national recognition for its accomplishments and has already been officially appointed as the National Training Base for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Zhejiang Provincial Medical Key Department,ZhejiangProvincial Spine Research Center, Zhejiang Key Laboratory of Orthopedics, WZM Orthopedic Institute, and WZM Bone andJointDiseasesResearchCenter.


Our department is one of the largest and most comprehensive orthopedic groups inZhejiangProvince. It has 182 staffs, including 39 consultant orthopedic surgeons. Special areas of expertise include trauma, spine, hand and micro vascular, foot and ankle, joints, arthritis and osteoporosis, sports medicine, pediatric Orthopedics, and tumors. The clinic visits have grown steadily over the past years and now over 180,000 per year. The department has 280 beds, and there are on average 12,000 elective admissions per year.


The department has a tradition of clinical and basic research in the field of mechanisms of disease, treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, biomechanics and biomedical engineering. In recent 3 years, the department achieved nearly 63 grants funding for orthopedic surgery in the country, including National Natural Science Foundation and Provincial Natural Science Foundation. More than 150 scientific papers per year have been published in Chinese and international journals. In resent years, the department has concentrated on the development of its research program in the minimally invasive orthopedic surgery. Physicians at the department have been pioneers in the use of innovative minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of spinal tumors, spinal deformities, and spinal trauma. In 2006, we published the first book on minimally invasive spine surgery inChina.


In the future, our department will continue to provide excellent care and service to patients, to help train orthopedic surgeons, and to contribute to the knowledge on which orthopedics is based.
