About us

As of 2019, we perform over 1,500 knee and hip replacements annually. We also perform 400 revision procedures every year.

As a tertiary referral centre, people are referred to us with complex musculoskeletal conditions both countrywide and internationally.

We have strong links with the other services at the hospital, such as the Bone Infection Unit. As a result we have accumulated considerable experience in the treatment of infected joint replacements.

Similarly, in collaboration with the Rheumatology Service, we treat patients with other inflammatory arthropathies such as:

  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • psoriatic arthritis
  • ankylosing spondylitis.

We also treat the orthopaedic manifestations of diseases, like sickle cell and haemophilia, when they affect the hip and knee.
