The Department of Orthopedics at Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences was initially started under the cover of the Department of Surgery in January 1960.

In 1965, under the able leadership of Dr.Gyanchand the department advanced and started functioning independently.

Over a period of several years of sweat and hard work, the department evolved into its present technically well-equipped form. Today it boasts of well set modern equipments and a state of art operative facility thereby making it a leading tertiary care orthopedic centre in the state of Karnataka. On the academic front, several research studies and projects have been completed and are ongoing with active participation in state and national conferences. Currently, the department is headed by Prof. Suryakant K who took over as Head of the department on 1st February 2015. A team of sixteen well informed and experienced orthopedicians work under him to enable the smooth functioning of the department which is furnished with 135 beds.

The department entered an elite category of institutions in 2011 when it was deemed as the regional Trauma Centre with a capacity of two Operation Theatres (OT) and 24 beds reserved exclusively for this purpose. This facilitated the intake of cases afflicted with polytrauma to be treated under one roof through a multidisciplinary approach.

On the academic front, the department has been permitted an intake of 12 post graduate students (MS/D-Ortho) per year.
