Five thousand years ago, herbal doctors in China were already skilled in the art of ¡°bone setting¡±, forerunner of what is now known as the practice of orthopedics. The knowledge accumulated over the millennia, aided by the influx of Western medical concepts, has resulted in an uniquely Chinese style of orthopedic theory and management, especially in the fields of fracture treatment, replantation, micro-surgery, post-poliomyelitis paralytic conditions and scoliosis management, et al. The journal of Orthopedic Journal of China, after experiencing many growing pains, has become one of the most famous orthopaedic professional journals in China. We express our heartfelt thanks to the authors who generously contributed to our journal. Only with all of your help can this Journal hope to thrive. Editor-in-Chief of OJC

Aims and Scope

Orthopaedics Journal of China, the Official Journal of the Professional Committee of Rehabilitation of Physically Disabled of CARD, http://www.chinaorthopedic.org/, publishes original papers from all over the world. The articles deal with clinical orthopaedic surgery or basic research directly connected with orthopaedic surgery. Orthopaedics Journal of China will also link all the members of Professional Committee of Rehabilitation of Physically Disabled of CARD by means of an insert that will be concerned with association matters. Finally, it is expected that news and information regarding all aspects of orthopaedic surgery, including meetings, panels, instructional courses, etc. will be brought to the attention of the readers. Manuscripts submitted for publication must contain a statement to the effect that all the studies have been meeting the appropriate ethics announcements that have been stated in our official website. It should also be stated clearly in the text that all persons gave their informed consent prior to their inclusion in the study. Details that might disclose the identity of the subjects under study should be omitted.
