Orthopedic Surgeons Kenya
Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics, also spelled orthopaedic is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

In Kenya, orthopaedics is inclusive of Orthopaedic Trauma. The Kenyan population currently stands at approximately 33 million. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that approximately 10% of the population in developing countries is physically disabled. This gives approximately 2.31 million disabled below the age of 18 years and one million above that age. There is currently 1.1 million population to one Orthopaedic surgeon which is well below the WHO accepted figure of 100,000:1. Kenya still relies on training of its Orthopaedic surgeons abroad and in neighbouring countries. The rate is very slow due to limited spaces and lack of funds, and some of the trainers have less than adequate facilities as compared to Kenya.
