PLAN

  • With rapid progress in the field of orthopaedics and in an era of specialisation , the department does not wish to lag behind. We would like to have dedicated units for Spine, Arthroplasty, Arthroscopy and Paediatric Orthopaedics along with facilities for managing complex trauma
  • With the setting up of the Stem Cell Institute in Surat, we would like to co-ordinate for stem cell therapy in various orthopaedic conditions
  • This would not only benefit the people of South Gujarat and adjoining states, but also the UG and PG students who come here to gain knowledge and stay abreast with the modern times.
