As orthopedic surgery involves joint replacements and implant insertions such as nails and plates, it is absolutely essential to pay meticulous attention to aseptic conditions. The new elective orthopedic theater has international standard laminar airflow. This is essential to minimize the risk of infection in orthopedic surgical cases such as joint replacement and implant surgery.
The equipment needed in orthopedic surgery has to be of the highest standards. The newly acquired equipment includes an operating table that can be used to take X-rays during the surgery. Inventory of the instruments used in orthopedic surgery has been renewed. Disposable surgical gowns and drapes are being used during surgeries to further minimize the risk of infection.
