Our Unit provides care for patients who have musculo-skeletal injuries and painful conditions of the joints. We specialise in diagnosis, treatment, surgery and rehabilitation of all these conditions.
Our new, purpose built Orthopaedic and Fracture Clinic opened at the end of 2011. Here we see both follow-up patients and new referrals. We also have a comprehensive range of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and orthotic services available. From the clinic we also run nurse-led follow-up services, our Pre-Operative Assessment Clinic (POAC) and the hip and knee classes.
The Department consists of 12 Consultants and offers specialist orthopaedic treatment in all sub-specialties. We also have close links with surrounding larger units for spinal, bone tumour and major trauma services.
