Paediatric orthopaedics and sports injuries

Treating the musculoskeletal system

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

Overview

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 complex leg-lengthening procedures and scoliosis. They are supported by a multidisciplinary team of specialist nurses, physiotherapists and orthotists, and work closely with rheumatology and neurology 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). We treat all types of injuries from growth plate and knee injuries to fractures and ligament damage.
