Department of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Shantou University Guangzhou Huaxin Orthopaedic Hospital
The Department of Paediatric Orthopaedics of Shantou University Guangzhou Huaxin Orthopaedic Hospital, the former department of Paediatric Orthopaedics of the Third Affiliated Hospital of Southern Medical University, was founded by Dr. LI Xu in July 2011. In October 2018, Dr. LI Xu brought his team to Guangzhou Huaxin Orthopaedic Hospital. Since then, specialty construction has scaled new heights and there are increasing international academic exchanges and cooperation. In May 2020, an emeritus professor of the Columbia University Prof. David P. Roye Jr., former director of the Department of Paediatric Orthopaedics of Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital joined the Department of Paediatric Orthopaedics of Shantou University Guangzhou Huaxin Orthopaedic Hospital, aiming at providing medical services of better quality and cultivating Chinese pediatric orthopedists to keep pace with the world.
The department now serves as the Vice Chairman Unit of the Group of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Branch of Orthopaedics, Chinese Medical Doctor Association, and the Chairmen Unit of the Group of Pediatric Orthopaedics, Branch of Orthopaedics, Guangdong Medical Doctor Association. It has great competence and distinctive characteristics in this field; in addition to commonly seen children’s trauma and diagnosis and treatment of deformities, the team is able to provide world-class services of high quality in areas that fellow surgeons in China rarely dabble in. For instance, treatment of cerebral palsy-related limb and spinal deformities and moto dysfunctions. In September 2020, a first-class 3D gait laboratory in China officially established in the hospital.
