Good afternoon, dear Prof. Leidinger, Prof. Yang Jianping, Prof. Luan Bo, Prof. Chen Houping, and all experts and friends present. Influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have to do academic exchanges on Pediatric Orthopaedics online instead of on-site activities. We’re having exchanges and discussions on the new progress, new technologies and new methods of Pediatric Orthopedics with Prof. Leidinger, an German professor,Prof. Yang Jianping and other domestic scholars.
我是贵州省骨科院的院长邱冰，我的专业是运动医学。my major is sports medicine。首先我谨代表贵州省骨科医院感谢各位专家教授在百忙之中莅临会议现场进行学术交流研讨。我们也感谢仁医医疗与贵州省骨科医院就举办中德小儿骨科全球直播学术活动所做的一切努力。
I’m Qiu Bing, President of Guizhou Provincial Orthopaedics Hospital. My major is Sports Medicine. Firstly, on behalf of Guizhou Provincial Orthopedics Hospital, I’d like to thank all experts and professors for attending the meeting to have academic exchanges and discussions. I’d also express my gratitude to Gloryren for all its efforts in holding Sino-German Pediatric Orthopedics Global Live Webinar.
Let me introduce our hospital. Guizhou Provincial Orthopaedics Hospital, founded in 1969, is a Grade Three Level A specialized hospital with two hospital campuses, one in Nanming District and the other in Baiyun District. This year we’ll expand our beds to 1,400 and thus allowing us to be one of the largest orthopaedics hospitals in southwest China.
During more than five decades of development, we’ve formed a specialized and comprehensive department system based on Departments of Osteopathy, characterized by Pain Medicine Department, supported by Orthopedic Surgery Department and strengthened by Rehabilitation Department and other departments. Over the past decade, the hospital has developed rapidly owning to the strategies of governing the hospital according to law, revitalizing the hospital through science and technology, strengthening the hospital through talents, basing the hospital on quality, and upholding the honor of the hospital through culture, promoting development through reform, stimulating the vitality of employees, and improving our comprehensive service ability through innovation. Our sub-specialties have made fast progress in particular. At present, we have nine sub-specialties, namely, Joint, Spine, Upper Extremity and Lower Extremity Trauma, Foot and Ankle Surgery, Microsurgery, Sports Medicine, Pediatric Orthopedics, and Bone Oncology.
We enjoy a high reputation in conservative treatment and minimally invasive treatment of osteopathies among the medical field. Our scale is also as large as having six inpatient areas for conservative treatment and receiving about 350 patients for years. We are especially proud that last year some departments of our hospital were listed among key clinical departments at the provincial level and were recommended as key clinical specialty construction projects at the national level by Health Commission of Guizhou Province. And our Departments of Osteopathy, Pain Medicine, Rehabilitation and Anesthesiology have also become key construction specialties at the provincial level. For Pediatric Orthopaedics, it was officially divided into a new department last year and has showed good momentum under the leadership of Director Wu Shengzhong. For example, more than 130 pediatric orthopedic operations were performed last month.
In this year, the facilities of our hospital will be significantly improved as the new campus was put into use. Our hospital will become more modernized, intelligentized, comfortable, green, ecological and environmental friendly with first-class environment, technology and services, thus playing a great role in protecting people’s health. These pictures show the facilities in our new campus.
Recently, there have been precious development opportunities for our hospital. We have made substantial progress in cooperating with Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, the most famous hospital in China, to build a Regional Medical Center of Orthopedics at the national level. In a few days, I’ll go to Beijing to witness the historic moment when the government of Guizhou Province officially signed the contract with Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, which will be a new starting point as well as a new milestone in the development of our hospital. We’ll work harder with our peers to improve the orthopedic medical technology in this region and protect people’s health.
However, we also know that Guizhou is an underdeveloped province in western China. There is still a large gap in medical technology, capacity and talents between Guizhou Province and developed regions at home and abroad. We still need to improve the medical capacity and treatment ability of orthopedics in our province by welcoming in specialists and sending out talents, and to introduce and cultivate medical talents, especially those in Pediatric Orthopedics.
We sincerely hope that experts, especially those from Germany, pay more attention to Guizhou, support us and render us more assistance by introducing advanced ideas, technologies, management and humanistic care, thus improving our comprehensive strength to better serve patients and make more efforts to protect people’s life. I’d like to share the news in English. In addition, my student Yang Yang is going to Germany to study for his doctor’s degree next year. I hope to get your help, thank you. I sincerely invite you to visit our hospital.
Lastly, in a pandemic-jolted world, I hope all the experts and fellow friends here are in good health. Let’s work together to overcome the pandemic and usher in a new and safe world.
