Trauma Care in the Himalayas

David Lhowe Trauma Surgeon at Mass General Hospital David Lhowe, MD is an Orthopedic Trauma and Hip & Knee Replacement surgeon in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School.


Sandwiched between its gigantic neighbors, China and India, the tiny nation of Bhutan is making a rapid transition from an isolated kingdom to a modern Asian democracy. Its 600,000 residents are almost exclusively Buddhist, and are dispersed over a landscape that remains largely forested with relatively little arable terrain. The population clusters in valleys, separated by Himalayan mountain barriers which have only recently become connected by two-lane roads. Through most of its history the country has been isolated from even its closest neighbors, and has only opened to Western tourists in the last 20 years. While visiting Bhutan from the United States is now possible it doesn’t come cheaply. The Bhutanese government charges US citizens a substantial daily tax for the duration of their visits.

Orthopedic Trauma Initiative Launched

Mark Vrahas Mass General Trauma Surgeon Mark Vrahas, MD is the Chief of Partners Orthopaedic Trauma Service and Vice Chairman of the MGH Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.


In March 2014, Harvard Medical School welcomed the Harvard Medical School Orthopedic Trauma Initiative as part of an elite group of twenty-two Institutes, Centers, Divisions and Initiatives. We are proud to be part of this group and our new name is reflected in our updated masthead. The primary purpose of this Initiative is to foster collaboration amongst the orthopedic trauma services at all four Harvard Teaching Hospitals in Boston: Mass General, Children’s, Brigham and Women’s, and Beth Israel Deaconess. This effort (and a long effort it was) formalizes our dedication to ensuring excellent educational opportunities in musculoskeletal trauma for HMS students, our HCORP Residents, and Fellows in the Harvard Orthopedic Trauma Fellowship Program. As a group, our trauma surgeons will work together to develop clinical pathways, collaborate on clinical research, and be – in large part because of our size – the premier research center nationally and internationally.
