Until 1990, Department of Orthopaedics did not exist. But since 1970 orthopaedic and trauma patients were treated under the care of one orthopaedic surgeon posted to North Okkalapa General Hospital. The teaching of this subject has been carried out for the 3rd year and final year students of MBBS course at the Orthopaedic and Trauma wards of the above General Hospital to which the present department is attached.
The Department of Orthopaedic and Traumatology was established only in August, 1990. Professor Myo Myint had developed the department to gain recognition both locally and internationally during the last few years.
Now, the department is responsible for treating the patients admitted to the North Okkalapa General Hospital and teaching of the medical students of University of Medicine II both undergraduate and postgraduate, the later comprising Diploma, Master and Doctorate courses.
