The study represents a trend in anthropology to shift its attention to places of modern technology and bureaucracy. The ethnography was carried out in an orthopaedic ward in a large government teaching hospital of Bangladesh. The study shows that in contrast to the assumed universalism in biomedicine, biomedical practice is in fact product of particular social conditions. The hospital reflects the features of its society.
