Orthopaedics and traumatology are the subdivisions of medicine dealing with the issues of diagnostics, treatment, and prevention of the musculoskeletal disorders that can be traumatic in their nature, or stand as the consequences of various illnesses. Many diseases of the musculoskeletal system develop after different traumas, as the result of physical impact, such as bone fractures, rupture or tension of ligaments. The chronic diseases develop over a protracted period of time due to derangement of metabolic process or undertreated acute illnesses leading to disorders in the locomotor system regeneration. The specialists of our hospital apply to both the unique therapeutic modes of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western methods of treatment, which lets us help patients with both chronic and acute disorders.
Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology
Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology is one of the biggest units of the First Teaching Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its staff includes 24 Masters of Medical Science, 22 PhDs and 2 Professors.
Under the direction of Van Pin, the head of the Department, our specialists use minimally invasive methods of treatment, as well as ozonation and radio-frequency techniques. These progressive therapeutic methods reduce the total in-patient period of staying in the hospital, contribute to the quick recovery after surgery, minimize the risk of secondary infection, and bring down the treatment expenses.
What we treat
The doctors of our Department cure the patients with the following disorders:

Methods of Treatment
In the process of orthopedic and traumatic diseases' treatment the specialists of our hospital use the achievements of technological development, which help them visualize the location of lesion, get into it and control locally the affected area by means of minimally invasive research techniques.
We use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) methods of treatment: acupuncture, which stimulates the peripheral nervous system and contributes to better control over the local issues, intake of individually selected herb teas, which initiates regenerative capacities of the local issue, and the methods of the traditional evidentiary medicine.
The specialists of our hospital set a stress on circumarticular and intra-articular introduction of ozone-oxygen cocktails in the process of orthopedic and traumatic diseases therapy. These medications have a significant anti-inflammatory and analgetic effects, help the patients get rid of pains, make them more active, and return them to their habitual working life.
Infra-articular or para-articular ozone injections are used in case of joint inflammatory diseases (arthritis, arthrosis); the injections are conducted by means of the entry needles and syringes. As for paravertebral (subdermal or intramuscular) ozone introduction, it is effective in case of osteochondrosis and radiculitis.
Electrosurgical Platform for Diagnosis and Treatment
The specialists of the First Teaching Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine reveal and treat various orthopedic and traumatic diseases by means of arthroscopy – the minimally invasive surgical operation performed for the purpose of diagnosis or therapy of inner injuries of joints. This procedure is conducted with the aid of arthroscope – a variety of the endoscope, which is introduced into the joint through the microincision. Arthroscopic manipulations can be fulfilled both for the purpose of diagnostics, and treatment of many orthopedic disorders, including arthrolith, cartilage surface damage, anterior cruciate ligament breakage, and so on.
Along with arthroscopy, our specialists use the following methods of diagnostics for the diseases of the musculoskeletal system:
- Physical examination – visual check of the appeared or present deformations;
- Palpatory examination;
- Computer tomography;
- Diagnostic arthroscopy.
