Orthopaedic surgery

Orthopaedic surgeons diagnose and treat problems of the joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves.

Trauma surgery involves treating ‘impact’ injuries caused by a fall, accident or sport-related injury. These are usually fractures, sprain, dislocations and soft tissue injuries.

Why choose the Cromwell Hospital for Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery?

Our private orthopaedic clinics run every day from Monday to Saturday, and you can often be seen on the same day. Tests such as X-rays and MRI scans can also often be done on site the same day, if they’re needed.

Our orthopaedic team is made up of highly experienced consultants, and expert technicians who run our advanced test equipment such as x-rays, MRI, ultrasound and CT scans.
