The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, established in 1943, is one of the major divisions of the Shijitan Hospital. It has been striving to become the orthopaedic program of choice by providing high-quality orthopaedic care, cutting-edge scientific research, and superior education to the next generation of caregivers. Currently, the division is under the leadership of Professor Wanpeng Xu, --a renowned orthopaedic surgeon who has devoted himself to potentially life-saving new therapies and leading-edge clinical trials ever since 1977. By specializing in surgical services related exclusively to bone tumors, Professor Xu has actively participated in the clinical research of bone tumors treatment. He is committed to keeping pace with the latest international techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery, and is gifted in strategically and creatively applying these techniques to his work. His expertise and dedication is evident by his exceptional record of tackling the most difficult orthopaedic diseases.

The orthopaedic surgical team at Shijitan Hospital is a well-organized team working towards excellence in physician integrity, service efficiency, and clinical quality. The team comprises one professor and chair, seven interim chairs, seven attending, and one resident. Two of the team members have earned a doctor’s degree, while another two hold a master’s degree. This is a team willing to think beyond the current wisdom, and to embrace the possibility of new directions. This is a team full of life, full of hope, and full of promise. Apart from routine procedures, the team specializes in the treatment of bone tumors and surgery on senior patients. We have an enduring track record for providing the top-tier surgical services in China. We perform 600 major orthopaedic surgeries annually, including a large number of predictably difficult and high-risk cases. At the same time we maintained one of the highest cure rate and survival rate in the nation.

Until now, more than 1000 total joint replacement surgeries have been successfully performed. And more than 2000 surgeries on spinal diseases, ranging from Lumbar Herniated Disc, Spinal Tumor, Spinal Tuberculosis, Scoliosis, to Spondylolisthesis, have been done with outstanding success. Patients with spinal Fracture, Pelvic Fracture, and/or Limbs Fracture are routinely treated according to AO Principles of Fracture Management. Other patients have received superior results after operation of reserving limb for Malignant Bone Tumor, surgical treatment of Spine Tumor by Anterior and Posterior Approach, excision of Sacral/Pelvic Tumor, minimally invasive spinal surgeries, and/or arthroscopic surgeries. Through these surgeries our division has made a considerable profit margin and has earned several prizes for technology innovation awarded by Shijitan Hospital.

Besides patient care, the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery also prides itself as a site for academic research and health care education. In terms of academic activity, we are continuously involved in scientific and clinical research and have authored or co-authored a number of peer-viewed publications and presentations. In terms of teaching, we provide topnotch didactic and clinical educational opportunities for medical students from Peking University Health Science Center, as well as students from other medical institutions. In addition, we facilitate the training and development of tens of orthopaedic professionals form all over China, who benefit from the expertise of some of the most skilled orthopaedics in the nation.
