Paediatric orthopaedics and sports injuries

Treating Children with Condition related to the musculoskeletal system

Our expert paediatric teams treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

Injuries and orthopaedic conditions affecting children

Our internationally respected children's orthopaedics surgeons treat a range of conditions from common problems such as fractures, curly toes, clubfoot and flat feet, through to scoliosis.

They are supported by a multidisciplinary team of specialist nurses, physiotherapists and orthotists, and work closely with rheumatology and neurology consultant colleagues.

We also offer a comprehensive sports injury service to young children and teenagers and work closely with the Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH), treating all types of injuries from growth plate and knee injuries to fractures and ligament damage.
