We have fifteen orthopaedic consultants who specialise in a range of routine and specialist areas, including upper limb, lower limb, complex hip and hand and wrist.
 
We also have an unrivalled sports injury clinic that runs twice weekly, with physiotherapist support within the clinic setting. Our clinic waiting times are short and we can offer fast access to subsequent treatment.

Service statistics

During the 2013/14 business year, our orthopaedic team conducted over 34,458 outpatient appointments. We undertook planned surgery (including hip and knee replacements) on over 3,422 patients, and treated over 1,051 trauma patients requiring emergency treatment.

Waiting times are low, with over 90% of patients requiring planned surgery are treated within 18 weeks of referral.

Our service meets the national waiting times standards for providing treatment within 18 weeks of referral.

Patient aftercare

The aftercare that patients receive will depend on the nature of their treatment, but may involve follow-up treatment with physiotherapists and occupational therapists at UCLH or in community services.

Most patients undergoing surgery will receive follow-up consultations with the surgeon in outpatients at UCLH.
