Orthopaedic Surgery

Service Description:

The Orthopaedic Unit consists of consultant surgeons and their teams. Not all patients will require surgery, and the Unit aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of problems of the musculoskeletal system and then arrange the appropriate management. We work closely with colleagues in the departments of rheumatology and neurology and some patients with musculoskeletal problems will be more appropriately dealt with in these units.

The Unit works with a team of physiotherapists and orthotists as well as occupational therapists and specialist nurses who all help to ensure that each child receives the right treatment in the right environment at the right time.

The Unit is a recognised Centre of Excellence and acts as a tertiary referral centre for unusual or difficult elective paediatric orthopaedic conditions.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Dedicated clinic for the management of club feet using the Ponseti method.
  • Use of the Ilizarov method for limb reconstruction.
  • Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH)
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta
  • Neuromuscular orthopaedics including Botox treatment and hip reconstruction surgery.
