Aim of the study To offer a glimpse into the orthopaedic practice in Romania during the nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century, corresponding to a period when this surgical specialty was defining itself. Introduction As in other parts of the world, in Romania, the orthopaedics and traumatology specialty derived from the main general surgery core. At the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Romanian doctors were eager to improve and to further develop the medical practice in their home country and, thus, the development of the orthopaedics and traumatology also benefited from this enthusiasm. Method A review of the literature was performed and both the online and offline libraries were searched for specific terms. The resulted data was structured and edited into separate subchapters for each doctor. Results Summarized biographic information are presented, covering the most distinguished figures that have helped develop orthopedic surgical branch in Romania. Great doctors such as Carol Davila (1828–1884), Constantin Dumitrescu Severeanu (1840–1930), Ernest Juvara (1870–1933), Ioan (Ion) Ghiulamila (1872–1936), Ion (Iancu) Jianu (1880–1972), and Alexandru D. Rădulescu (1886–1979) are some of the most renowned for laying the foundation and for developing modern orthopaedics and traumatology in Romania. Discussion
