About the Orthopedic Services
Orthopaedics is the care of the bones, joints and the soft tissues of the limbs and spine.
We treat a wide variety of conditions such as factures and sprains, sports injuries and damage to bones as a result of ageing. These conditions may be present from birth, or they may occur as a result of injury or age-related wear and tear.
Common conditions treated by orthopaedic surgeons include:
- severe osteoarthritis of the hip or knee. Where joints have become destroyed by disease, or worn out, orthopaedic surgeons can often replace these joints with artificial ones.
- fractured (broken) bones
- torn or inflamed muscles, tendons and cartilage
- dislocations of joints
- infections in bones and joints
- trapped nerves
- disorders of the spine -your GP will tell you if your condition is one that could benefit from an orthopaedic opinion.
