There are nearly 150 doctors who are able to perform arthroscopic surgeries independently in Hunan Province. In addition, over 5,000 arthroscopic surgeries were performed in 2016 across the province. Relevant scientific research projects and talents continue to mount. Continuing education for postgraduates is also in full swing."

At the same time, our colleagues in Hunan Province stick to social benefits, help the poor and support the border areas regularly, and provide different types of gratuitous medical consultations; keep serving the athletes, provide general surveys of injuries and diseases regularly, and popularize exercise rehabilitation theories and practice.
