Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre

The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC) is a world-leading medical and research centre for the treatment of a wide range of disabling bone and joint (musculoskeletal) conditions and neurological disabilities. We also provide private healthcare.

All patients at this superb hospital receive top-level healthcare. However, as a private patient some of the additional benefits include:

  • choice of specialist doctor or surgeon
  • choice of admission date
  • choice of surgery date
  • preferential access to a single room*

*We will always try to accommodate you, but occasionally we may have to give priority to patients who, for medical reasons, may need a single room.

Wherever possible we will provide your private care using facilities that are separated from NHS services. For some services however, this is not clinically desirable.

Certain procedures or investigations requiring specific clinical expertise, or the use of highly specialist equipment, are best performed using staff or equipment shared by all patients. Examples where this is the case include access to the gym, hydro-pool and specialist imaging.
