If you are on our waiting list for an operation or procedure; learn about what we are doing to reduce our waiting list and some guidance around how to prepare for your surgery while you wait.
This service offers video consultations using Attend Anywhere. This means your consultation can take place from your own home using a secure website.
We provide specialist surgery for upper and lower limb problems and treatment for disorders of bones and joints:
- bone infections
- carpel tunnel syndrome
- Dupuytren’s contracture
- low energy fractures
- rheumatoid arthritis
- sports injuries
- traumas from accidents e.g. broken, fractured or dislocated bones
We also perform operations such as:
- hip replacement (arthroplasty)
- joint arthroscopy
- knee replacement
- revision hip and knee services (joint reconstruction)
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you may see one of our consultants:
- in A&E
- in an outpatient clinic
- as an inpatient
- as a day patient
We’ll diagnose and treat your injury and support you through your rehabilitation. This may mean referring you to one of our other services like Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy.
If you’re suffering from a medical condition related to bones or muscles, you might decide to have an operation or treatment to correct the condition. For minor treatments, you’ll be invited to attend the hospital as a day patient. For more complex operations, you’ll be invited in as an inpatient.
Following your surgery we’ll work with other services and healthcare professionals to help you get back on your feet as quickly and safely as possible.
