You are welcome to the website of the premiere Orthopaedic Hospital in Nigeria. The National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi is located along the ever busy motorway (Ikorodu Road) in Lagos. The institution started as a Military Rehabilitation Camp for prisoners of war returning from 2nd World War. After recognition by the Colonial Medical Services in 1945, it became a Medical establishment known as Igbobi Orthopaedic Hospital. In name, the hospital has undergone a metamorphosis from Igbobi Hospital to royal Orthopaedic Hospital and now National Orthopaedic Hospital. The hospital, between 1945 and 1977 was at various times under the administration of the Federal Government and Lagos State Government. It has however remained a federal Government health institution since 1977 to date. The hospital can accommodate up to 450 patients. In the early days, the sphere of influence of the hospital extended to other parts of the West African Sub-region, Central Africa and Angola. During the same period the hospital was a repository of materials and resources for students.
