The Lower Limb service treats patients with hip and knee related concerns.
Our team consists of:
- 8 consultant surgeons
- 1 clinical fellow
- 4 advanced nurse practitioners
A few of the surgical service we provide are:
- Primary hip and knee replacement surgery
- Arthroscopic surgery
- Revision surgery for hip and knee replacements
- Treatment for soft tissue injuries
Patients requiring joint replacements or revisions must attend our Joint School prior to admission for surgery. This is a joint service with our preoperative assessment, physiotherapy and occupational therapy departments to prepare patients for their surgery and what to expect after the operation.
