About the department

Green Life Hospitals Dhaka, in all probability, has the best orthopaedic department in the country, serving to provide 360º care as a Bone & Joint Centre. The Department of Orthopaedics has three full-time Consultants, one part-time Consultant, a number of junior doctors, and supporting paramedical staff trained to deliver a 100% success rate. Our team diagnoses, operates and treats problems affecting the bones, joints and muscles of patients encompassing all groups.

The Department of Orthopaedics offers out-patient consultation services and procedures. It is well supported by fully equipped operation theatre (OT), intensive care units for pre- and post- operative care, as well as rehabilitation services in
