What we do

Our teams at both hospitals offer a full range of assessment, diagnosis, treatment (surgical and non-surgical) for diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal system—or ‘bones and joints’.

We run a wide variety of general and specialist outpatient clinics and work closely with colleagues in order departments across the hospital to help integrate care around the patient and develop the best pathways.

We also receive patients for elective (planned) inpatient and day care surgery, supported by our specialist nursing team, who are there to provide information, support and guidance throughout the procedure.

Conditions we treat/treatments we provide include:

  • Hip and knee replacements and revision procedures
  • Complex soft tissue knee surgery
  • Hand and shoulder surgery
  • Foot and ankle surgery
  • Paediatric orthopaedic surgery
  • Tendonitis, bursitis and other inflammatory conditions
  • Arthritis—painful or stiff joints
  • Bone, joint and other limb infections and dislocations
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Limb soft tissue injuries to ligaments, cartilages, muscles and tendons

Our team

Our teams consist of consultants, orthopaedic surgeons, nurses and ward staff, many of whom specialise in particular types of surgery such as for the knee or shoulder.
