It not only provides health care to the patients of Capital territory, but also looks after the referred patients from the northern Punjab, AJK, KPK and Gilgit.At present, it has 45 inpatient beds in SW-2,two operation theaters fully functional 6 days a week. The department provides outpatient facilities to some 3000 patients per month and 24/7 trauma care in the A&E department.Besides providing management of fractures, the elective surgeries include, arthoplasties (hip, knee, shoulder & elbow), complex osteotomies and Illizarovfixation , surgeries for DDH, CTEV, and polio .
