Orthopedic surgery has been performed in Iran for thousands of years. Evidence of this fact can be found on mended skulls, arm, and leg bones which have been treated and healed with Orthopedic methods. These bones are currently kept in museums for public viewing. This proves that Persians have been skillfully healing broken and deformed bones since ages ago.

Centuries ago, Persian doctors such as Ibn Sina and Abu-Bakr al-Razi used orthopedic methods to treat broken bones and sprains. These methods have been thoroughly recorded in their books.

A group of Persian doctors traveled to America and Europe in 1950 to go through professional orthopedic surgery courses. After returning to their hometown they started a new chapter in Iran’s orthopedic science. They turned orthopedic surgery into an independent branch of medicine. In 1970, Iran’s first orthopedic hospital was founded in Tehran (It was called Shafa-Yahyaeeyan).

Iran’s orthopedic surgeons gained a superior level of experience during Iraq’s invasion of Iran, due to the many injuries caused by war.

Currently, Orthopedics is one of the most advanced medical branches in Iran. Our Orthopedics compete with their Japanese, European, and American counterparts. All this has resulted in Orthopedic surgeries of the highest quality and most efficient prices. Many health seekers from the Middle East and the rest of the world travel to Iran every year for orthopedic surgeries.

In recent years, Persian experts have designed a 3D modeling system that can create a 3 dimensional model of the injured bone or joint. This model can be used by surgeons to simulate all types of surgeries. This system is the first of its kind in the Middle East and it helps Orthopedic surgeons to perform operations with high levels of finesse and success.

According to doctor Mahdi Poor, an orthopedic surgeon in Iran, this technology also helps surgeons correctly perform sophisticated knee replacements and artificial implants.
