Letter from the Editor

In order to improve the quality of our journal “Genij Ortopedii” and make its publications visible in the world information space, the Editorial Board has undertaken a number of organizational actions.

We have stated the journal’s mission which main goal is to contribute to the development of the contemporary medical science via presentation to the scientific and practical medical community of the fundamental and applied original scientific studies that would widen and deepen the understanding of the most important problems in the field of traumatology, orthopaedics, and related specialties. 

The priority for publication in the journal "Genij Orthopedii" is given to scientific studies in the field of limb lengthening and reconstruction. However, we welcome the integration of scientific studies or fusion of research streams, interaction of different scientific schools and directions.

For mutual interchange of comprehensive knowledge, the list of subjects for publication has been expanded and is intended for both researchers and practitioners.

This issue of the journal presents a wide range of topics for your attention: experimental and theoretical research in traumatology and orthopedics, osteosynthesis technologies, reconstructive surgery, joint arthroplasty, conservative treatment and rehabilitation of patients with disorders of the musculoskeletal system, purulent osteology, and diagnostic studies.

A new editorial board of "Genij Orthopaedii" consists of prominent Russian and foreign scientists with high publication activity reflected in the international databases such as Web of Science and Scopus.

We have launched a new website of the journal ( that provides open access to the latest issues and full text archive. In our opinion, this policy will contribute to the global exchange of knowledge and experience.

Starting with this issue of the journal, all the articles will be translated into English and posted on the website.

We are pleased to announce that the publication and access to the articles remain free.

I hope that our journal will evoke a lot of interest in 2017 and use this opportunity to wish a Happy New Year to our authors and readers!
