For the first time in the Almaty region, a specialized department of traumatology was organized in the Almaty regional Hospital in 1968 for 30 beds. The first head was appointed Aituganov T. K.

In 1970, the Almaty State Medical Institute organized the Department of Traumatology-Orthopedics headed by Professor K. A. Palgov, MD. The Department was based on the Department of Traumatology of the Almaty Regional Clinical Hospital. The staff of the department, headed by Professor K. A. Palgov and the head of the department, T.

In the middle of 1970, the department introduced corotid angiography of cerebral vessels, an ultrasound cutting-welding device for bone fragments, echoencephalography of the brain, and also widely introduced the use of the Ilizarov apparatus for false joints and open fractures.

From 1976 to 2012, the department was headed by a traumatologist-orthopedist of the highest category, a holder of the orders "Badge of Honor", "Kurmet", an excellent health worker of the USSR and the Republic of Kazakhstan Kazybayev Aman Kazybaevich.

Under his leadership, hip replacement has been introduced in the department since 2009. Since 2011, osteosynthesis of tubular bones with blocking rods has been introduced.

From 2012 to 2021, the head of the department was a traumatologist-orthopedist of the highest category Malaev Talgat Amanbekovich.
