If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Orthopaedics and spinal surgery

We are a multidisciplinary team (a team made up a range of different healthcare professionals) specialising in the treatment of bone and joint problems in children. 

We are the largest dedicated children’s orthopaedic unit in the region, providing 4,500 outpatient appointments and around 500 operations a year. 

What we do

We treat bone and joint problems in children. We cover all aspects of general paediatric orthopaedic surgery including upper and lower limb problems. We specialise in the management of the orthopaedic aspects of neuromuscular disease, especially cerebral palsy.

We apply the most modern and up-to-date strategies to treat children with neuromuscular problems. There is a dedicated teenager complex hip clinic and we also treat sports injuries in adolescents. We provide a number of other subspecialised clinics including baby hip dysplasia, ponseti and triage clinics.

Find out more about what we treat on the conditions page.

We also assist our colleagues in the accident and emergency department with the management of children with orthopaedic emergencies, including fractures and infections.
